Ever wonder what APMEX’s physical headquarters looks like? Melinda and I are taking a quick trip down to Texas for a few days to see a college buddy of mine who can cure the strangest things with a new technique called NET. This doc rocks!
We were driving within a few miles of the APMEX location in Edmond, OK (just north of Oklahoma City). I thought I’d stop in and say “hi” to the folks.
They’re located in a *very* nice part of town. We took in some beautiful architecture on our way in. Very swanky! Their storefront is sited in the “Market Depot” strip mall. I couldn’t find it at first as the name above their door is “Edmund Coin”, not APMEX.
“Sure is!”, said the friendly guy behind the counter, busy sorting what looked to be a small stack of silver dollars. He pointed to the APMEX logo on his shirt as proof. I snapped a pic of it. Cool. Thanks for indulging me! (At least this time we didn’t have to have Alaric snap the picture because the rest of us were too embarrassed! Remember?)
I was introduced around to five or six staff members and told them my story about buying silver back when it was $7/oz. They wanted to know if I was selling any..they’re definitely looking to buy as they are running very low.
I ignored her and jumped in with a quick synopsis. “The money powers behind the government are engineering a financial collapse of the US economy. It’s happening now and I believe they plan to have it complete in 2011. Then, during the ensuing social and economic chaos, they can take over.”
The customer was worried that meant a “cashless society.” In retrospect I see he could have meant nobody in the US will have any cash. But I think he meant all transactions will be electronic. God save us if that happens and they contract with Microsoft to administer the program!
Before I left I asked them, “My friends and I have talked about making a roadtrip down here to sell all our silver once it hits its highs. Do we bring it right here to this location?”
“Yep, and if it’s a big load we’ll have you back up to our loading dock around back!”
Looks like it’s all set, Kevin and James! Hey, J-Boy, count you in, too? Hi ho silver, away!
