Costco now selling caskets online

Costco's Canadian branch is launching a pilot project to sell caskets in this country.

Toronto-area customers have been able to buy one of four models of caskets online for the past week. The wholesale giant expects to make them available in the rest of the country soon.

Caskets ordered online won't be shipped directly to your door, however — the supplier, Walker Caskets, will need to know the name of the deceased and the funeral company handling the arrangements.

Costco caskets start at $1299.99.

The company has offered on-line casket sales for the past seven years in the U.S. Aside from coffins, the company makes flowers, urns, and even pet urns available online.
