This is the third consecutive year APMEX has been listed in the magazine's top 500. APMEX ranked as the #1 specialty e-retailer in 2016 and 2015 as well.
Internet Retailer® magazine annually releases their top 500 e-retailers in North America. The privately held APMEX made their financial and operating data public for the third time, the first being 2015, to be considered in these rankings. In 2017, APMEX comes in ahead of name brands such as Lands' End, J. Crew and many more.
'We at APMEX continue to work as a team to accomplish a key goal to provide a one-of-a-kind shopping experience to delight our customers, APMEX CEO Ken Lewis said. 'With a selection of more than 10,000 products ranging from bullion items to numismatic, we are constantly working to offer a wide selection of products to our customers. We also have added additional educational information to our website such as CoinGrade+™ and Investor Collections to ensure anyone who shops with us is provided the tools and resources needed to make the purchase that is right for them.
APMEX was started in 1999 by President and Founder Scott Thomas after he began selling his grandfather's old coin collection on eBay. A little more than 16 years later, APMEX has grown from an eBay-only store to a small shop in Edmond, OK, and now to the former Federal Reserve building in downtown Oklahoma City. APMEX handles every aspect of the business, from product preparations to shipping, directly from their facility. Providing this kind of service is one of the ways APMEX stands out from its competition.
'We are thrilled to be recognized for the third year in a row on the Internet Retailer® Top 500, Vice President of Digital Marketing Jean-Marx Mantilla said. 'We strive to offer the best experience for our customers and take pride in being an industry leader. We are excited for our future as a company and look forward to giving our customers new and exciting digital experiences.
APMEX is honored to once again rank among well-known brands like Shutterfly Inc., Neiman Marcus and Foot Locker in the Internet Retailer® Top 500. APMEX is looking forward to the upcoming year and making strides both within the Precious Metals industry and the e-commerce platform.
