B 6 Oxford/Orion Progress Edition 2016

Imagine walking into a store where you can find anything and everything, from gui- tars and guns to jewelry and collectable coins to power tools and electronics.

Folks in the Oxford area, don’t have to imag- ine it because it already exists in the form of We Buy It, located at 697 S. Lapeer Rd. Open since 2009, the store buys, sells and trades a diverse assortment of merchandise, the com- mon denominator being it must have value. “We buy pretty much anything that’s not common household stuff,” explained store co- owner Kevin Rowden. “If it has a decent amount of value, we’ll look at it. We’re not horribly picky. If we can pay you enough to make you happy and still keep our lights on, then we’ll try to help you out the best we can.”

The demand for guns in the U.S. is at or near record levels and We Buy It is excited to offer a variety of shotguns, rifles and handguns, both new and pre-owned, for personal protection, target shooting, hunting and collecting. “That’s one of those markets where somebody’s always buying and selling or up- grading,” Rowden said. “We do a lot of trades. That seems to be the big thing right now, some- one will trade a gun in order to upgrade. If a guy’s got five slots in the gun safe and he wants a new one, the wife pushes him to make one go away. We hear that story just about every day.” Guns remain a solid investment. “Firearms hold their value so well,” Rowden said. “Take a $350 pistol, for example. Pre-owned, it still sells for $280 to $300.”

Guns, precious metals, estates – We Buy It handles it all

We Buy It co- owner Kevin Rowden.

ers, so we’ve been getting new firearms at more competitive prices,” Rowden said. “Typically, we can pretty much match or beat most of the on-line companies on a majority of our stuff.” “That’s been a pretty big part of our busi- ness over the last six months,” he continued. “It’s probably close to 50/50 right now when it comes to new versus used sales.” Rowden noted the wholesaler he deals with offers a lifetime warranty on every one of its firearms.

“If you buy it, for as long as you own it, the warranty is good,” he said. We But It also sells a variety of ammuni- tion and firearm accessories such as scopes. Precious metals are still a hot commodity

Although there are plenty of pre-owned firearms to choose from, We Buy It is quite proud of its selection of new guns, particu- larly its array of pistols from popular manu- facturers such as Ruger, Glock and Smith & Wesson. “We’ve hooked up with some wholesal-

at We Buy It, particularly when it comes to silver bullion. “We’re always buying,” Rowden said. “Six days a week, we’re buying.” He explained that “silver’s a really good investment right now” because the price is low, so it’s a good time to buy and turn a good profit when the value increases again. “About four years ago, silver was push- ing $50 an ounce. Right now, it’s been $14 and $15 an ounce,” he said. “It doesn’t even have to hit its all-time high for you to triple your investment right now. It can go from $14 to $40 and it’s not even the highest it’s ever been, so it makes a lot of sense to invest in silver right now.” We Buy It is also in the market for dia-

monds. “We’re always looking for high-quality dia- monds, half-carat or bigger,” Rowden said. “We’ll pay really competitive prices for those.” The store will even pay for those small chip diamonds that most places won’t, so customers selling jewelry can receive that, plus the value of the gold. “Your average gold place will tell you

there’s no value in those small diamonds, but there is,” Rowden said. “It’s not huge money, but we always pay extra for that.” Rowden noted We Buy It does house calls upon request.

“For example, if you have a gun collection or a large, valuable coin collection that you’re interested in selling and you don’t feel com- fortable taking it out of the house and travel- ing with it, we can come to you and make an offer,” he said. We Buy It also purchases entire estates. Sometimes the estates belonged to indi- viduals who are now deceased. Sometimes they belong to people who are moving out of state and want to leave everything behind. “Basically, we come in, put a number on it all and if we can make a deal, we’ll clean out the house and garage,” Rowden said. “We do everything. We buy it all and we move it all.” We Buy It is open Monday through Fri- day from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 12 noon. The store is closed on Sunday.
