This is cited from a series named Buffy, the Vampire Slayer

Mom and Daughter are in front of a shop to buy a Christmas tree.
What does the bold sentence mean?

Vendor: Bunch of 'em up and died on us. Don't know why.
If you want one, I can make you a hell of a deal.

    The relevant definition of "on" is this one: so as to disturb or affect adversely: My hair dryer broke on me.

    That is, "a bunch of them died, to my detriment."
