Frequently asked questions for Midwest Exchange
What is a Buy, Sell or Trade Store?
Just like it sounds! Merchandise is purchased from customers for cash and/or for trade toward items in the store, which functions as a normal retail outlet offering new and used items for sale at a fraction of the retail price!
Where is MIDWEST EXCHANGE located?
Do you sell online? Where do you ship?
We do not ship or sell directly online from this website, although we do ship all over the United States and the globe through our eBay store (MIDWEST-NEATSTUFF) and GunBroker store (MIDWEST-NEATSTUFF).
What forms of payment do you accept?
We accept VISA, MasterCard, Discover or cash for in-store purchases but NO PERSONAL CHECKS AND NO AMERICAN EXPRESS. As for eBay purchases you can pay with PayPal, Postal Money Order, or any of the methods above for in-store pick-up.
What do you buy or sell?
We’re willing to buy or sell just about anything, within reason! We do specialize in musical equipment — lots of guitars and amps with tons of vintage stuff. In fact, Ed is quite proud of his ever growing collection of old 1950s-60s amplifiers that adorn the walls in one of his stores. We also buy, loan and sell REAL guns.
Who owns Midwest Exchange?
The original Midwest Exchange opened in Bloomington more than 25 years ago by Joseph “Wes” Lane. For more than 25 years, Wes operated Midwest Exchange up until his retirement in 2015. Currently, the store is owned by Steve Mileham and Edwin “Ed” Pierce since January 2015.
