BBC news reports today that:

“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 (£540), to a bronze model at $2,899. The retailer is offering caskets at prices that undercut many funeral homes, say correspondents.”

This is the best bit:

“But an industry spokesman said it was not gravely concerned about Wal-Mart’s move”
