KUMASI COFFIN SELLERS BORED AS BUSINESS SLUGGISH
Coffin sellers in the Kumasi Metropolitan are lamenting over decline in business.
According to some of them who spoke to filasconews, their business used to boom even during the covid period but it has not been same recently.
While others consider it one of the ramifications of the pandemic, others say their business booms on monthly bases because corpses are buried at the end of the month so they are able to make money at the end of the month.
They said the prices of the coffins are base on the type of coffin you order. They added that the coffins are also bought based on the status of the deceased.
The cost of one casket, they said ranges from Ghc 600 to Ghc 1000 to.
On the perception that they pray for people to die every day so that people will die for their business to boom, they said though they pray for business to boom but it cannot be true they pray for the death of people so their relatives will buy coffins from them to get money as widely speculated.
