“The world’s largest retailer, Wal-Mart, now plans to hold on to customers even after they die – by selling coffins. Prices range from a ‘Mom’ or ‘Dad Remembered’ steel coffin for $895, to a bronze model at $2,899. The retailer is allowing customers to plan ahead by paying for the caskets over 12 months for no interest. They can be dispatched within 48 hours.

A spokesman for the supermarket giant, Ravi Jariwala, said the new coffin range was ‘a limited beta test to understand customer response’.”
