Even as the dollar weakens, the demand for gold remains strong. Case in point: Gold & Silver Buyers, which assesses, buys, and refines gold, silver, and platinum, is the largest buyer of precious metals in Texas, with 62 locations sprinkled around the lone star state. "A lot of people that come into gold buying places or pawn shops just need to make their car payment," says Brian Culwell, CEO of Gold & Silver Buyers. "We treat all of our customers the same. It doesn't matter if you're making a million dollars a year or you're blue collar, you walk out feeling good instead of walking out ashamed."
