Wal Mart May have trouble selling Caskets in Georgia-Your funeral Guy

30 Nov

What if Walmart online casket sales go up in the next year?

Walmart may have trouble selling caskets in Georgia. That state has specific regulations on registering casket and urn sellers. Wal Mart may just have to register to conduct business there.

Costco does not sell caskets in its stores for this very reason.

And, if Walmart does indeed shake the foundations of the funeral industry with its decision to sell discount caskets and urns, that may not wind up mattering to Georgians. A state law could prevent the retailer from selling or delivering discount funeral merchandise here.

On Tuesday the Georgia Secretary of State’s office sent a letter to Walmart telling the company it is required to be registered with the state to sell funeral merchandise and as of now, it may be in violation of state law if a Georgia consumer buys a casket online from its Website.

It will be interesting to see if WalMart registers as a Casket Seller in the The State of Georgia. One thing is for sure. If Online caskets sales pickup they  Casket could be tested in their stores.
