More South Africans have resorted to online shopping due to the coronavirus pandemic, and these virtual stores have widened their ranges to include a more vast number of items than ever before. One offer that has left many scratching their heads in confusion is a bit of a morbid sale item found on Takealot.com.
There is a brown wooden coffin for sale on Takealot.com for R4 899, which has been marked down from its original price of R5 500.
The delivery on the coffin is free, but the online store warns potential buyers that it is a non-returnable purchase.
Here is SA’s reaction to this… um, interesting buy:
The no return policy on the Takealot coffins is understandable. You can’t not need a coffin anymore after buying it.

My question is – How did you even find a coffin on Takealot?

With Takealot poor delivery service, you would probably have to order the coffin as soon as you start feeling sick. pic.twitter.com/yRH24obW5C

I keep thinking this Takealot coffin thing is a hoax. But it’s really true. Right there on their website. You can purchase a coffin. WTF 💀💀
