Burial caskets and coffins went on sale at Costco in Melbourne on Wednesday and there are plans to introduce them to the low-cost retailer's seven other Australian stores in the coming months.
They have indicated that they will sell 14 different coffins and caskets ranging in price from $360 to $3800.
Costco has sold coffins and caskets in the US for years, but Australia is the first foreign market to introduce an end-of-life range.

The coffins are made in either China or Italy from materials including eco-friendly MDF and timber.
