DGSE to purchase location for its second Dallas/Fort Worth flagship store
DALLAS, TX / ACCESSWIRE / May 11, 2021 / DGSE, LLC ("DGSE"), a subsidiary of Envela Corporation (NYSE American:ELA) ("Envela" or the "Company"), has entered into an agreement to purchase a retail building in Frisco, Texas for its next full-scale, modern Gold & Silver Exchange store in the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex.
Building on the success of its most recent store openings in Lewisville and Grapevine, Texas, the Company is expanding its DFW presence with a 5,000 square foot premier store in Frisco, Texas. With a growth rate over 71% for the last decade and deemed the fastest-growing large city in the U.S. by the Census Bureau, Frisco was a natural choice for the next Dallas Gold & Silver Exchange ("DGSE") location. This store will feature high-end customer service, an attractive product selection, and on-site jewelry repair. Brick-and-mortar expansion augments Envela's retail footprint and gives the Company an additional channel to educate and serve its clientele.
- DGSE's staff includes Gemological Institute of America (GIA)-graduate gemologists, horologists, authenticators, and luxury-brand experts.
- A key element of the Company's mission is extending the useful life of luxury goods, for which we offer on-site jewelry and watch authentication and repair services.
- Each store's merchandise is carefully selected for its locale and includes vintage luxury timepieces, modern diamond engagement rings, custom silver bars and rare coins.
- Modern technology enhances DGSE customers' in-store shopping experience.
- We execute an omnichannel-technology approach to serving customers, marketing and sales.
"At DGSE, we focus on exceeding our customers' evolving expectations for products and services," said Scott Mosley, President of DGSE. "A key initiative over the next two years is to implement omnichannel and immersive consumer experiences as we expand our brick-and-mortar retail footprint. This includes investing in new technologies and talented staff to further DGSE's best-in-class customer experience," added Mosley.
DGSE focuses on sustainable, authenticated recommerce of luxury brands and diamonds. Its retail strategy is anchored in being an information resource for clients, bringing transparency to purchase and sale transactions, and offering value and liquidity to those seeking to buy, sell or trade jewelry, watches, diamonds, or coins. DGSE strives to deliver an unrivaled customer experience. It features a broad selection of high-quality vintage and new jewelry, precious-metal bullion, rare coins, fine timepieces, and diamonds, together with value pricing and a customer-friendly sales process.
