Gold N' Opportunities

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 a decade.

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."
