July 7, 2016   //   No Comments

When visiting a discount store, the shopping list usually consists of food, toiletries and other household items. Now, Costco customers in Australia can add a coffin to that list.  The supermarket giant, after stocking coffins in its US stores for several years, has partnered with Scientia Coffins and Caskets to make Australia the first foreign market to introduce an end of life range.

Fourteen different coffins and caskets are available, ranging from £249 to £2,627. Manufactured in China and Italy, the eco-friendly coffins can be ordered in-store and shipped in two days to either the customer or their funeral director.
