Much of what most of us need can be found at your local pawn shop. It is true! The business of pawn-brokering is an amazing entity that exists to provide for a very diverse customer base. It makes no difference what you do as a profession, what demographics you come from, or what aspirations you have in life; they understand that you are interested in making a sell or a purchase and that describes their entire mission in a nut-shell. Not many other genre in the private or public sectors of business make this claim. With your needs in mind, they do what is possible to take your goods and turn them into opportunity for their next client.
If you have not been to a pawn shop lately, there is much you probably have missed and in these weeks before Christmas you could do well to explore them. The market has become so technical and based upon a huge array of products causing them to constantly look in different directions to build a stronger more customer friendly environment. What you may consider as just some item not serving any purpose laying around in your garage or in the house, a future customer will be in desperate need of at that moment. If this is in question, just go down to the pawn shop and watch to see what people are seeking to purchase. It may surprise you.
One person may be looking for a special tool for dad, another has to have an instrument for a class at school or college… and here comes Christmas. It is impossible to fathom how this market is driven by certain demands, but Pawn shops are the ultimate barometer of what there’s too much of or of what is in demand. The odds are that your Christmas shopping would benefit from a trip to your local pawn broker. You might even get some great gift ideas that hadn’t occured to you.
A true indicator that these pawn shops are in the customer service business is when they take the time necessary to find what you need if they don’t have it in stock. This is common-place with them; it is the norm and something they thrive on to solidify your confidence and trust in their ability to provide what you are pursuing. Fortunately, you have the opportunity to see all of this for yourself. Never take anyone’s word when making decisions of purchases and possible investments, especially in jewelry or other high-dollar items. Enjoy the experience and be prepared to be pleasantly surprised.

Boca Raton’s own Lee Josephson from Boca Raton Pawn was recently quoted in Fox Business, “A lot of times people will ask about the interest rate, but forget about the fees”. Sometimes the fees are so hidden and so massive, that the customer could get “robbed” of their money before they have even walked out the door. With that just being one of the many questions to ask.
Here are a few more to remember:
*How long have you been in business?
*Are you insured?
*What happens if the shop is robbed and my item is stolen?
*Do you require paper work?
*Where will my stuff be kept?
* Will I get notifications of when my bill is due?
Proper paper work and full knowledge of your state’s pawn shop laws are a good way to make sure you are dealing with an honest shop. For instance, In Florida, paw shops are required to make a copy of your driver’s license and take a thumb print to have on file for all of their customers.
Lastly, make sure you leave with all of your paperwork, including copies of the paperwork the shop manager made you sign for! Especially the receipt, because that could be one of the hidden fees they can (and some do)! charge for!
Remember, don’t just run out and pawn when desperate times are amongst, pawn SMART! Pawn iPhones, iPads or other Apple Products today!
The other day I was lounging around watching TV when I saw a new Best Buy ad. The ad was to promote their new “buy back” program where they will buy back your electronics (at a lower price of course) to keep up with ever changing technology. At first I didn’t think much of it. I mean big corporations like Game Stop have been buying back their products for years. But the more I thought about it I said, “why aren’t more companies doing this?” After all, places like pawn shops Boca Raton have been doing it for years. I mean pawn shops will buy basically anything they think they can make a profit on. And with the introduction of eBay in the last 10 years selling useless items has never been easier.
After seeing the ad and thinking more of it I Googled it to see what other people thought. Most articles that I read said the general public was drawn to the program and it seems to be working for Best Buy. It makes perfect sense. Why throw away your obsolete two-year-old laptop when you can sell it back to the place you bought it from? You can even use the money you get towards a new one. The fact that more companies don’t do this is mind boggling.
Personally, when I was younger, I worked at Game Stop, then at an estate jewelry store, and now at a pawn shop Boca Raton. All three of these companies make a majority of their money by buying back customers valuables and selling them at a discount. For 5 years I have seen first hand the success that companies have from buying used items. For example, Game Stop will buy back a video game for a fraction of what they sold it for; and they will sell it as “pre owned” for three or four times what they bought it back for. They entice you to sell your games back to them by offering more money if you use the money towards a purchase. It is no coincidence that Best Buy saw the success of Game Stop and adopted its own “buy back” system.
Best Buy has yet to say that they are going to adopt this “buy back” program forever. In fact I think it is only for a limited time. Maybe they are testing it out before they offer it forever? While I am not the CEO of Best Buy or of any other company for that matter, I have seen what success buying back old products can have for a company and I recommend Best Buy keep this program forever.
