It's a buy-one, get-one-free sale — at a cemetery, of all places.

Memorial Park Cemetery on Indianapolis' far east side is offering plots at the bargain-basement price in one section of its grounds.

It's not another telling sign of the recession. General Manager Mark McCronklin says it's a promotion the cemetery has run for several years around Memorial Day.

McCronklin says it's just a closeout sale on one section, and the cemetery is doing very well.

Signs along the street outside the cemetery also advertise that no one with bad credit will be turned down.
