Searching for the Southland's Best Gold Prices

Have you tried selling gold anywhere in the area? Oak Lawn Patch editor Lorraine Swanson see how the gold-selling process works and to weigh the different offers.

Since the stock market started going on a bender again, gold has suddenly become everyone’s favorite metal.

With the precious metal trading up to a record-setting $1,800 per ounce, gold-buying stores are also setting records as people bring in their old jewelry, coins and even their gold teeth to cash in on the latest gold rush.

“Our company is going crazy,” said Jerry Lang, store operations director for Midwest Gold Buyers. “We’re setting new records every day.”
