I called on your list of casket suppliers and found out that almost all are either out of business (number out of service or rings to another unrelated business), or rings to a funeral home. Almost all cities do not have a casket store now. All are almost gone because people can buy an 18-gauge metal casket online delivered for $1000 and that same casket at the local casket store goes for $1800. The only cities I could find functioning casket stores by calling your contacts are Chicago, LA, Orlando, Dallas, Houston, San Antonio, and a few others. Casket stores are a thing of the past and have been replaced by online stores that can fly a casket in and courier it to the funeral home door in less than 24 hours for almost half the price with 20 times bigger selection. Unfortunately the small casket store is like the small mom + pop retail store, they cannot compete with the bigger can stores which have everything. You ought to at least call on your casket store list and remove the 80% that are no longer in business.
