Caskets at Walmart? Soon they will be running out of seniors to welcome you at Walmart, the baby boomers are headed to the big gig in the sky. What better way to cash in by selling caskets online and to employees. Costco already sells them and now Walmart is closing in on another industry by putting some of the local coffin makers out of business. Deadly. Just imagine Ingmar Bergman’s Seventh Seal death greeting you at the door.
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.
