Downtown welcomes a new store: Gold N' Opportunities, located at
72 Merchants Row. "The Big Guys," as John Mandell and Adam Sharpe
call themselves, openned May 9 selling scrap gold as well as many
other valuable items including, vintage games, newest video games
and systems, digital cameras, iPods, laptops, desktops, tablets,
jewelry, dvd's, bluray's and stereos.
The store opperates seven days per week: Monday-Saturday from 10
a.m. - 6 p.m. and Sundays from 11 a.m. - 5 p.m. But The Big Guys
don't limit themselves only to those store hours; they will take
calls for gold anytime day or night.
"We, The Big Guys, love and appreciate our loyal customers so much
that we are introducing a 24 hour gold buying phone line," said
Mandell of the service, which was scheduled to begin May 9. "We
know that the times are tough and sometimes, the unexpected
happens... Anytime of the day or night, we can be reached at
802-345-9473... This is one of our many ways of saying 'thank you
for everything' to our loyal customers."
Mandell and Sharpe are new to town having moved here from upstate
NY, where they opperated a similar shop located in Fort Edward.
They have each been in the gaming and gold buying business for over
So far, The Big Guys both really like Rutland, "it has a small town
feel, but a big town atmosphere," Mandell said. Adding, "We like
the people here and were looking for a change."
