Alpharetta Consumers Receiving More Than Twice the Cash By Selling To Gold Brokers Instead of 'Cash for Gold' Stores

Recent reports indicate that local gold dealers have been struggling to stay in business since the 2011 Holiday Season came to an end. It seems that the small amount of business that remains in local markets is being spread over the large number of 'Cash for Gold' dealers that have not yet gone under. The inevitable result is that consumers are receiving very little money from these 'Cash for Gold' dealers in exchange for their gold as the struggling businesses desperately strive to keep their doors open.
Savvy, informed consumers who keep up with local news are steering around local "Cash for Gold" or "We Buy Gold" stores and dealing direct with local area Gold Brokers who pay over 80% market value for consumers' gold and jewelry. They can afford to do so because they are positioned at the wholesale level in that they deal direct with gold refineries. In fact, one local gold broker actually owns their own local refinery.
Gold Brokers are few in number and can usually be found through internet search engines. They rarely advertise as it's an unnecessary expense for brokers who do all they can to keep their overhead extremely low. This seems to be key in sustaining their ability to keep their payouts to their customers above 80% of market value. All of our research indicates that Gold Brokers consistently pay consumers more than double the amount 'Cash for Gold' dealers pay.
One preliminary report indicates that certain well established 'Cash for Gold' dealers are filing first quarter 2012 accounting reports that indicate record high profits while at the same time record low number of transactions. This anomaly indicates that these businesses are simply making much higher profits from each individual transaction than ever before.

Gwinnett Gold Brokers usually pays dealers one dollar per gram per karat, depending on market prices. This means that a 14k gold necklace or bracelet that weighs about an ounce (or the approximate weight of a silver dollar) brings better than $14 per gram or $500 for the item from GGB. The local area dealers would pay $93 to $155 for the same item, while advertising and claiming that they pay "Top Dollar" or "Highest Prices."
These gold dealers are making such huge profits from their current price schedule that they continue to open more and more stores even today. And they're getting great deals on commercial rent from the more than half empty strip malls that exist just about everywhere.
Since local "Cash for Gold" dealers haven't been paying fair prices to consumers - Gwinnett Gold Brokers this week announced that they would be dealing directly with consumers and paying them the same price that they've been paying dealers. Other benefits of dealing with Gwinnett Gold brokers include seeing clients by appointment only for the customers' privacy and security, giving quotes over the phone, free house calls in Gwinnett, transactions are made in CASH ONLY, and GGB does business from 10AM to 9PM seven days a week.
Newspapers and local & national television news crews have done many stories on GGB over the years, and often when news producers need current information on the local gold market - they turn to GGB for related information of the highest integrity.
Where is GGB located? They have owned their own commercial property in Buford for over a decade, but in recent years - a sub-division has emerged in front of the company's property. This gives the appearance that it's a temporary, unprofessional operation being run out of somebody's basement. Nothing could be further from the truth. In fact, the owners have interest in many storefronts around Atlanta. They simply prefer the safety, comfort and elegance of their present location and wouldn’t have it any other way. Anyone objecting to the lack of formality of a storefront may feel more comfortable dealing with one of the endless "We Buy Gold" dealers seemingly popping up everywhere.
