Sweetwater continues to grow with Gold & Silver Buyers opening

Gold & Silver Buyers, the largest purchaser of precious metals in the state of Texas is expanding into the Big Country, with a new location in Abilene at 3458 Catclaw (between AAA Vacuums and City Nails) and a location in Sweetwater, scheduled to open next month at 309 North East Georgia Street (next to Check ‘N Go). The company, which currently ranks #8 on the 2011 Inc. 500 Fastest Growing Companies list, has more than 100 locations in Texas. Gold & Silver Buyers can be found not only in large markets, such as Dallas, Houston, San Antonio and Austin, but also in numerous smaller Texas cities and towns, such as Longview, Waco, Brenham, Conroe and College Station. Gold & Silver Buyers has received nationwide attention for its unique one-stop shopping concept of placing many of its Texas locations inside popular grocery stores where customers can pick up dinner for the evening and then sell some gold and silver. The company also runs the refinery so there is no middle man, and the payout often is higher than what the competitors offer.Gold & Silver Buyers President Larry Gray says, “Since we are the largest gold and silver buyer in Texas and are located in both large and small cities and towns, it was natural that we move into Abilene and Sweetwater. Not only do our customers include people who work and live in the area, including college students and professors, but also residents from surrounding towns and counties. There was a great need in Abilene and Sweetwater for a buyer who is direct-to-refiner, which means the consumer who comes to us gets more for their gold and silver.”Gray says the company sees a wide variety of items brought in—from Grandmother’s silver service and candlesticks to out-of-style and broken jewelry.  The number one item brought in: class rings. “Our customers are often surprised at how much they can get for their high school and college rings,” Gray says. For more information, log onto www.goldandsilverbuyers.com
