I live in GA, where coin stores (and especially clubs) are still relatively common. Nearest one to me is about a 15 minute drive.
If you are looking for flips to send for grading I would suggest guardhouse flips off of Amazon. Back in January I bought packs of 100 for $9 per pack.
It seems that LCS dealers are strongest in cities/states where major shows regularly take place. GA and FL has plenty of both. Maybe Coin Clubs has something to do with it? We have a lot of them here.
If I had to guess, that's due to several factors.
A. Florida has plenty of retirees.
B. "Baby Boomers" and the fact that older generations constitute a large portion of collectors.
C. Georgia's relative proximity to Florida and the Southeast as a whole.
D. Active clubs, as you've mentioned @YoloBagels. The coin clubs I've belonged to in the past always hosted a show twice a year.
commercial realestate cost. There are a whole bunch of previously neighborly type businesses that have all but gone out of business from the local diner, small movie theaters, newspaper stands, shoe shines, comicbook shops, magazine shops, and other such hobby things, all gone.
Makes sense. Hard to compete when you are paying for a prime lease.
What do you think the rents would be for, say, 1,500 square feet in NYC as opposed to "Podunk" Iowa?
Probably why folks don’t blink when they spend $195.00 for ten dollar sneakers.
that is not a local coin shop.
Higher end, yes....but a coin shop to the Manhattan elite.
not really. In fact, I am sick of buying coins on the web and waiting for the suprise when the coin gets into your hands for the first time.
