A brilliant business move by Wal-Mart, if you ask me, given where incompetent government bureaucrats, union thugs, classroom theorists and flat-out crooks trying to take over the health care industry may lead:

MILWAUKEE – The world’s largest retailer wants to keep its customers even after they die.

Wal-Mart has started selling caskets on its Web site at prices that undercut many funeral homes, long the major seller of caskets.

The move follows a similar one by discount rival Costco, which also sells caskets on its site.

Wal-Mart, based in Bentonville, Ark., quietly put up about 15 caskets and dozens of urns on its Web site last week.

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.

Peruse the selection here.

For an extra $1,200, Wal-Mart will supply a door greeter at your funeral.
