    Default Wal-Mart starts selling caskets

    Wal-Mart starts selling caskets, urns online - USATODAY.com

    MILWAUKEE The world's largest retailer wants to keep its customers even after they die.
    Wal-Mart has started selling caskets on its website at prices that undercut many funeral homes, long the major seller of caskets.

    The move follows a similar one by discount rival Costco, which also sells caskets on its site.

    Wal-Mart (WMT), based in Bentonville, Ark., quietly put up about 15 caskets and dozens of urns on its website last week.

    Prices range from $999 for models like "Dad Remembered" and "Mom Remembered" steel caskets to the mid-level $1,699 "Executive Privilege." All are less than $2,000, except for the Sienna Bronze Casket, which sells for $3,199.

    Caskets ship within 48 hours. Federal law requires funeral homes to accept third-party caskets.


    It looks kinda weird seeing this on Walmart.com

    U got to be kidding me
    They play monopoly in monster, they've taken out all small local businesses why not selling caskets as well so they can burry the competitors too for a cheap coffin.

    Do they do delivery or we have to bring the corpse to the store?

    They might build WalMart-Funeral store, all-in-one. They will have midnight madness sales, shop until you drop dead and we'll burry you right on the spot.

    No seriously....what do they try to do, put the funeral home out of business?

    They try to put everyone out of business, they don't care who or what it is.
