The gold vending machine is back at Town Center of Boca Raton.
Just outside of Burberry, Tory Burch, Stuart Weitzman and Banana Republic stores in the corridor next to the Brahman Motors Bentley display is a six-foot-tall golden box that dispenses 1 gram to 10 grams of gold.
Meris Kott, managing director of PMX Gold Bullion, said the machine was placed at the mall Jan. 4 and the company has a year lease. The company used a German machine about two years ago for a trial run at Town Center. This time PMX Gold Bullion Sales, based in Boca Raton and a subsidiary of publicly listed PMX Communities Inc. (OTC BB: PMXO, 7 cents), had its own machine designed.
Another machine will be placed in a Florida mall in the next few weeks, Kott said. Her goal is to have 10 to 12 machines placed in various malls by the end of June.
“It’s a souvenir, an investment or a gift,” she said.
