Company Expands Reach into Collin County

DALLAS, Jun 28, 2012 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- DGSE Companies, Inc. (nyse mkt:DGSE) today announced it has opened a seventh Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex retail location in the Collin County suburb of Allen, Texas.

The Allen location follows last week's grand opening in Southlake, Texas. Like the Southlake and all other Dallas Gold & Silver Exchange locations, the Allen store will feature full-service bullion trading and investment services as well as purchasing and selling fine jewelry, rare coins, scrap gold, silver, diamonds, fine watches and other valuables.

Allen represents the first Dallas Gold & Silver Exchange location in Collin County, home to almost 800,000 North Texans. The store is conveniently-located in The Village at Allen, on the southeast corner of US75 & Stacy Road. Immediate highway access makes this destination easily accessible from a number of North Texas' most affluent suburbs, including: Plano, Frisco, McKinney, Murphy, Fairview, Lucas and Parker.

"Opening two new Metroplex locations within two weeks is a significant achievement and we're very optimistic about the success each new store promises," stated Dusty Clem, COO of DGSE Companies. "The Dallas Gold & Silver Exchange brand is well-defined within the market and these newest stores will immediately benefit from existing branding and market-wide advertising. Increasing our store count within the direct marketing area will continue to increase our operating and marketing efficiencies, while providing DGSE with direct proximity to North Texas' most affluent suburbs."

The Allen store is located at 190 East Stacy Road, Suite 216 and can be reached at 972-481-3870. Visitors to www.dgse.com can learn more about the store and products and services offered.
