Yep, Walmart Now Sells Caskets Online

By Andrew Liszewski

To be perfectly honest I guess I really shouldn’t be that surprised that Walmart sells coffins and caskets on their website, but why are they listed under the ‘For the Home’ category? I’m pretty sure they have to be shipped directly to a funeral home, and in case you were wondering, they can’t accept a returned casket if it’s already been used due to FTC regulations. So forget about saving even more money on a refurb unit.

    I don't know if this is in bad taste or not. Next you'll see them on the shelves at Sam's Club. I'm trying to think of a joke for this golden opportunity but I got nuthin.

    This is just so dumbfounding I might just land me in one o' them things.. But on a lighter note, this just proves that Wal-Mart is beginning to feel the recession and is getting desperate.
