You see them in various parts of town and you have been
wondering just exactly what is a pawnshop, how do they work and why are they becoming more
Pawnshops date back to ancient times and are one of the
earliest recorded lending institutions. During the late Middle Ages the House of Lombard
in Europe had a group of pawnshops. The sign of the House of Lombard was the three golden
balls and this sign was associated for years with the pawn industry.
The pawn industry came to America with the first settlers
and in the early part of this century pawnbroking was regarded as the main source of
consumer credit. With the rise of large consumer credit institutions, such as finance
corporations, savings and loan associations, and credit unions, the pawnshops are no
longer the major source of consumer credit. However, they still play a vital role in the
area of providing consumer credit. The tremendous demand of relatively small borrowing
unavailable from other sources is the main contributor to today's popularity of pawnshops.
WHERE THE GREAT BARGAINS ARE...
If you are interested in saving money and finding great
values, the pawn shop is the place for you to go. The pawnshops have it all. All we are
about is a quality merchandise at outstandingly low prices. Pre-owned merchandise of
excellent quality can be found on our shelves every day at the lowest prices. Every time
we loan on an item we expect that some day it could be on our shelf for sale. Therefore,
we will only deal with good quality merchandise. Also, the pawnshop is an established
business. The pawnshops are not here today and gone tomorrow like the flea market, auction
sale, garage sale, or the guy selling out of a van on the side of a road. Today's
pawnbrokers are in a constant race after a good reputation. They are regulated and
licensed by the state to ensure they do not deal in stolen merchandise. For the same
purpose all transactions are closely monitored by law enforcement agencies.
