Pawn never sounded so helpful
Pawnshop newbie? You’re not alone!
If you have found yourself needing some quick cash recently, you may have considered heading to a pawnshop. You are not alone. The bad economy has prompted many people to visit a pawnshop for the first time.
“We’re seeing folks who have never been in a pawnshop before needing short-term assistance without having to sell anything,” says Irwin Sablosky, president of WM.S. Rich and Son. You shouldn’t feel afraid or embarrassed about heading to a pawnshop, but there are some things you need to know.
Don’t believe the bad image
Pawnshops aren’t the shady, scary places they often appear to be in the media. The mainstream media has unjustly vilified pawnshops, and so most people perceive pawnshops to be dirty and seedy. Instead, “pawnshops are regulated by 12 federal laws plus numerous state and local laws,” says Emmett Murphy, spokesman for the National Pawnbrokers Association, or NPA. “The majority are clean, well-lit stores run by people who pride themselves on providing good customer service.”
Go to the best.
