The Pawn Experience Simplified

We understand that not everyone is familiar with a Pawn Shop.  Below are some insights for a few of the more frequently asked questions. Stop in and see what the experience is all about!

What do I need to Transact?
  1. The item you want to pawn/sell

  2. Your government issued identification (license)

  3. An idea of how much you want for the item.

  4. That's it!

How about for Pick Up?
  1. Your government issued identification (license)

  2. Your transaction receipt

  3. Cash to pay off loan + incurred interest.

  4. Simple!

Our Offerings

Come into the store with an idea of what you want in exchange for your item and what you want to do - loan or sell!

Pawn

You want to keep the item, so the item brought in is put into storage for cash.  To get the item back, come back to the store, pay off the loan and any interest incurred prior to your loan terminating.

Buy

Search our ever-changing inventory for items you enjoy and make an offer. We don't want items sitting on the floor,  buy and take it with you when you leave!!

Sell

You no longer want the item and want cash. You want to sell directly to the store. There is no additional associated fees or activities required.

Operations

If the store associate cannot help by purchasing or offering a loan; the best thing to do is to bring in a different item that you believe has greater value and take your current item and walk away. You still have your valuable good and we always want you to stop in again!

VALUE PRICING: 

Please understand that value is part subjective and objective. There are things in the store that sell well and things that do not, pleae understand that we cannot accept all items. Subjective value plays into whether an item is going to be bought or not by the store. Subjective value might be where a jewelry store marks up their prices to indicate luxury. Gold at a pawn shop is not worth the perceived value price that was paid, but more or less worth the objective value of the weight of the gold in the item.

Technology and tools once an item is used, loses value quickly. Think how quickly an iPhone becomes obsolete!

Also think about the time an item sits in storage / on the shop floor, the item could become obsolete by the time we find a buyer. The "true" value is what that item can sell for, and how readily can that happen. If there is no customer for it, it will be difficult for the store to sell and it will cost the store money in terms of space to store it until it's sold.

Items at times need to be cleaned, fixed, charged, stored and cared for. This goes into business fees and employee time.

All of these elements and more goes into pricing items!
 

LOANS:

Nationally, 80% of goods are reclaimed at the end of their loan period. In our shops, that stat is much higher! 

Our team does the best they can to make business happen and aims to build a sustainable business that is valuable for all parties in our community.
