Located in the Springhills Commons Plaza, 39th Ave. Buyers was opened in 2012 as an upscale alternative to the average pawn shop. Its owner Todd Ragans wanted to create a resale shop that felt like a boutique, so that those coming there to sell their belongings did not feel so demoralized by their difficult circumstances. He believed that a clean and bright environment would enable them to maintain their hope and optimism.
Customers browsing this store will find a large selection of historical precious metal coins and rounds, including Mercury Head Dimes and Silver American Eagles, many of which are still in their mint sealed packages. In addition to these collectibles, 39th Ave. Buyers also carries a wide variety of electronics, jewelry, designer purses and apparel. With his ever growing inventory, Ragans has recently had to launch an online extension of his business with a 39th Ave. Buyers eBay store.
