Upstate Gold Exchange opened its doors in Simpsonville, South Carolina in May of 2010 when two locally established families banded together to provide professional precious metal services (but don’t let their newness fool you. They have plenty of precious metal savvy and experience.) Their initial offerings to the public was a success, and within six months they were opening their second location in Greenville. The demand for their services was evident as customers filed in, seeking help to cash in their unwanted valuables.
“The experience of serving so many customers was overwhelming at first”, expressed Jason. “It was not long before we had built up quite a large client-base, and we had customers visiting us who had traveled from other cities and states, telling us they wish we would open a store closer to them.”
Upstate Gold Exchange went on to be a favorite go-to spot for many in the upstate, as people sought to find a reliable place that they could take everything from estate items to childhood collections. The UGX family has thoroughly enjoyed the long-term customers they have made. They pride themselves on the fact that most of their business still comes from repeat customers and word-of-mouth referrals.
Tony, the patriarch and initial anchor of the business has been buying and selling precious metals for decades. “I enjoy helping people understand how gold and silver works and I love to see folks walk out with a smile because I’ve given them a good deal”, said Tony in an interview.
Upstate Gold Exchange currently operates from three safe and easily accessible locations in the Greenville-Simpsonville-Easley area. If you feel UGX is a good fit for serving you, then call or visit one of their storefronts today to see how they can be of service.
