An Apple a Day…

Okay, so this is not entirely accurate. You won’t purchase an Apple product a day to keep the
compulsion away. However, you can certainly experience huge savings on your Apple IPad, IPod, or
IPhone by going to your local Boca Raton pawnshop. These stores have been taking in an inventory regularly due to the new versions of these products being released so frequently.

The brushed aluminum back of the iPad Wi-FiSome consumers are very devoted to Apple and wait on the edge of their seat for the next opportunity to upgrade. As part of this process, many will take the time to drop by one of these pawnshops to get a great deal from selling their phone, pad, or music player. The thought is to be able to recoup as much of their initial purchase price to reduce the out of pocket expense for one of the newer devices.

Who can blame them? This is just a wise way for reducing any loss on the purchase of a new item. As everyone knows, once a new product leaves the store, it decreases in value. Since a kindly used Apple product can be sold at such a tremendous savings, the value is actually better for the second consumer of the product. If an owner of an IPhone 3 happens to sell to the pawnshop, and the shop resells this
item to another customer, this transaction has savings written all over it. A great product for even a
better price will be the experience; you can count on it.

It is a matter of who has the best deal as to who will get the primary business. Take the time to look
around and discover what will work best to fit the all-important budget. For some, having an IPad
versus an IPad 2 is perfectly alright. The extra power or technological wonder on the IPad 2 may not
be necessary. Everyone has varied taste in what they want in technology. As the saying goes, “…to
each their own…” For any one individual, it is simply a matter of what they desire, what will serve their
specific need, or what will take them to the next level. While an Apple product a day is not practical or
sensible, one every six months to a year is not out of the question.

Press Release: Boca Raton Pawn

Boca Raton Pawn has been featured in various websites across the internet.

BOCA RATON, Fla., May 16, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Forget bringing in the toaster … this is not your father’s pawn shop.  Rather, Boca Raton Pawn ( says bring in your Steinway piano, Tourbillon watch, diamond necklace, Lamborghini, yacht or even your Stradivarius violin and they’ll get you the best possible deal available.

Located in the heart of Boca Raton, Boca Raton Pawn recently opened its doors and has been flooded with both high-end and unusual items.  Boca Raton Pawn is located on North Federal Highway just across from Mizner Park.

“The pawn industry has a poor image and we’ve set out to change that by opening up an exquisite store in one of the wealthiest regions of America.  Because banks are completely disinterested in loaning money, pawn shops or collateral lenders have become an effective and fast way to borrow short-term capital against assets,” said Seth Marcus, Manager of Boca Raton Pawn.

Boca Raton Pawn is dedicated to maintaining the high level of customer service, integrity, discretion and professionalism.  Beyond pawn and collateral loans, Boca Raton Pawn also offers assistance with selling through eBay.

“The volume of people coming in has been staggering and I think it’s thanks to our prime location and that the community is quickly learning that we’re able to pay more than our competitors,” added Marcus.  “Also with the TV show Pawn Stars, the pawn industry is hugely popular again, plus a record numbers of people are faced short-term cash flow issues that banks can’t help them with.”

Pawn Stars is Unrealistic: Boca Raton Pawn Shop

Now that I work in a pawn shop Boca Raton I always seem to notice when shows like “Pawn Stars” are on TV.  There are actually two mainstream shows about pawn shops.  One is Pawn Stars and the other is Hardcore Pawn.  I like to watch Pawn Stars in my spare time.  However, I don’t like how it represents what pawn shops are.

For example, since Pawn Stars is on the History Channel they only show people pawning historic items like swords from the 15th century.  In the real world of pawn shop Boca Raton this kind of item is rarely pawned.  The fact is most pawn shop employees are not qualified to determine the value of such items; which leads me to my next problem.  There is no way Rick knows all of these “experts” that he calls in to evaluate rare artifacts.  He may know a few people from being in the business for years but seems highly unlikely that he has an expert for every item that comes in.

I wish there was a show about a real life pawn shop Boca Raton.  One where people come in with jewelry or TV’s or even typewriters from the 50’s.  I think people would like a real insight into what the pawn business is all about.

One thing I do like about “Pawn Stars” is it displays pawn shops in a good light.  A common misconception  is that pawn shops are dirty, scary, and seedy places.  While this may be the case for some, most are actually nice upscale places where you can buy or sell a wide array of items.

While shows like Pawn Stars and Hardcore Pawn are not a 100% accurate representation of pawn shops they have improved the public’s view of them.  The pawn business seems to be at an all time high.
