Inside 43215: Gold Rush


inside 43215


Downtown Columbus

There’s a gold rush happening right downtown, though somewhat in reverse. Rather than panning for nuggets, folks are taking advantage of close-to-record-high gold and silver prices to sell broken or unwanted jewelry, coins and flatware. Federal Gold Traders LLC at 4 East Broad Street offers a safe and convenient location to sell precious metals at highly competitive prices.

In addition to being convenient downtown (and in two other locations), you can be sure you are getting fair value for your items. In fact, their policy is to offer "the best price first.” That means you don’t have to haggle in order to get the highest price.

Federal Gold Traders also offers fundraising opportunities. Organizations looking to raise funds can invite guests to an event where they can give and receive. Guests sell their precious metal items, receiving the same in-store high prices, but 10 percent of all purchases are donated to the organization. That is a real win-win.

Recently, Federal Gold Traders held their own event to benefit Komen Columbus, the local affiliate of the Susan G. Komen Fund to cure breast cancer. This dedication to fundraising demonstrates the business’s commitment to the Columbus community.

Federal Gold Traders is open Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
