Be careful. In areas where caskets stores, Costco, and now Walmart are prevalent, funeral homes sell caskets at cost and recover all of their operating overhead in the professional service charges instead, eliminating any savings you might enjoy. This is completely legal, as long as it is done uniformly. Casket profits help fund the operating overhead of funeral homes. As a funeral director, I think that many of the bad things that have happened in funeral service have their roots in crematories and funeral homes that don’t charge enough to stay in business without shady dealings. Trying to steal profits from funeral homes could feed this problem.
