Dallas Gold & Silver Exchange Opens Fort Worth Location Eighth North Texas Store Advances Company’s Coverage of D/FW Metroplex

Dallas, TX – Dallas Gold & Silver Exchange, a wholly-owned subsidiary of DGSE Companies, Inc. and Texas’ largest dealer of precious metals, bullion, rare coins and jewelry, announced today the grand opening of a Fort Worth location, the eighth Dallas Gold & Silver Exchange store in the North Texas market.

The new store is located at 6115 Camp Bowie Boulevard, approximately 3/4 mile southwest of I-30, in Fort Worth’s well-established West Side. The store joins existing Euless and Arlington locations in strengthening Dallas Gold & Silver Exchange’s presence in Tarrant County, one of Texas’ most populous counties, with a population of just over 1.8 million people. It also marks the eighth Dallas Gold & Silver Exchange storefront in the D/FW Metroplex, the nation’s 4th largest MSA (Metropolitan Statistical Area).

Located amidst diverse retail business on the heavily-trafficked Camp Bowie Blvd., the 2,400 sq. ft. store will offer all products and services Dallas Gold & Silver Exchange is known for. Included in those offerings are buying and selling precious metals for investment purposes; buying customers’ pre-owned gold, jewelry, diamonds and watches; buying and selling rare coins and paper currency; buying, selling and servicing pre-owned Rolex watches; and selling pre-owned and Manufacturer Direct jewelry.

“Dallas Gold & Silver Exchange has enjoyed a long and successful presence in Tarrant Country and we’re happy to now be open in the heart of the great city of Fort Worth,” commented Jim Vierling, CEO of DGSE Companies, Inc. “The abundant population within the immediate area is considerable and we expect to engage many new customers with this ‘western-most’ market location. We anticipate continued enhancements in efficiencies across the board, particularly in market-wide advertising.”

The grand opening follows last week’s news that DGSE Companies has introduced a full line of Manufacturer Direct jewelry. The line, consisting of 150-175 unique styles of jewelry, is immediately available at all eight Dallas Gold & Silver Exchange locations, including the new Fort Worth store.
