Pawnshops Surge in Popularity During the Pandemic Despite Economic Downturns
2020 and 2021 have been incredibly hard on many businesses. This is especially true of smaller mom and pop type establishments. Data indicates that roughly 600,000 businesses closed permanently as of the start of 2021 according to the Wall Street Journal.
That’s a very disturbingly high number. We remain very grateful to our customer base here in Southwest Florida for supporting us during this time.
Pawnshops such as First Pawn Jewelry and Loan of Naples and Lehigh Acres, Florida are still going strong. We believe the reason this sector of the retail world remained strong is that unlike normal retail we are in business to be mutually beneficial to the community. We buy from you the consumer not wholesale from other retailers or worse, overseas losing more money for our country.
We sell at competitive low market value-based rates versus inflated retail pricing. This gives you the most bang for your buck and our customers know it. We loan money on any valuable item that can be held as collateral so no matter if you lost your job or had other income-based hardships during this crazy time. We don’t judge you based on a fictitious number created by credit bureaus.
Pawn shops are literal treasure troves. You never know what you might find. They are fun to stop in and explore and our customers return time and time again to buy and sell knowing that they are valued and treated fairly.
No matter what you are looking for or to sell we likely broker in it! Musical instruments or equipment, Tools, sporting goods and equipment, diamonds, jewelry, watches, designer pieces, designer bags, vintage jewelry, games and gaming consoles, firearms and home protection, ammo, TV’s, entertainment, Stereo systems, collectibles, antiques, unique oddities, you just never know what we may have in stock.
They say that Variety is the Spice of Life! That holds true in the pawn world. We love what we do, and every day is different.
We would love to see you in the store! We have two locations right here in Southwest Florida for your convenience.
