Dying for a Discount At Costco
I've been trying to get to some substantive legal news, really, I have. It's just that our appellate courts haven't been cooperating issuing decisions that are covered here. OK, maybe I'll just have to dig deeper. But first, here's this one that I just couldn't resist:
Big box retailer Costco has added caskets to its inventory. Not yet available online, the retailer has offered them in only two Chicago area test stores so far.
I've got a few questions first. Where in the store? Next to the cigarettes?
Not that I'm dying to buy one, but do I have to buy them in a jumbo pack? Or do they come family size, and three-fourths of the casket will go to waste if I need to buy only one? If I decide to put a casket in my basket, will it tip over? Is my truck big enough to hold it? How do I unload it at the gravesite?
Buying caskets at a discount is a good idea, but perhaps Costco is not the best place to make that purchase. At least, though, if you get the casket there, you can get flowers, too.
