Why Buy your Electronics at a Pawn Shop?

The world of consumer entertainment technology is an ever-changing and rapidly advancing field. No sooner than you buy your newest smartphone is there a better version of it available. You just finish setting up your cutting-edge home theater system, only to see the ‘updated’ version being advertised. That Blu Ray player that has barely a few movies played through it has now evolved to feature streaming capabilities. It’s nearly impossible to keep up with all of the ‘latest and greatest’ marketing, but some people seem to be on top of the trend at all times.

How to Turn What you Think is JUNK into MONEY

We’ve all heard the idiom “one man's trash is another man's treasure”, and it’s certainly an accurate statement. We can take it a step further and say that some things you once saw as treasure can end up being trash, so to speak. Back in the college days, you bought that brand new stereo system much to the envy of all your friends. It was replete with a dual-cassette unit and even a turntable, paving the way to production of endless ‘road-trip’ tapes. With a two channel amplifier and speakers the size of an average refrigerator, you were styling with the latest and the greatest. But times have changed.

Gold – Why do you need it?

Gold is a precious metal and fairly rare element that has been used throughout history as a monetary system in the form of coinage, in jewelry and other forms of adornment, and in other arts as well. Although the world monetary gold standard was abandoned in favor of a fiat currency system in the 70s, the value of gold persists and actually continues to grow in spite of this.

Guns – Why Pay Full Price?

Firearms are generally not inexpensive. They are an investment in personal security, any number of shooting sports, and your 2nd Amendment right to bear arms. Depending on the firearm, they can range from several hundreds to several thousands of dollars. If well taken care of, they hold their value and last a lifetime or more, as evident from specimens that may have been around during World War I and still function flawlessly today.

Tools – Why Pay Full Price?

We all need and use tools of some type, either in our jobs or for those things that need some manner of occasional repair or maintenance. Some might be specialized, as in an automotive mechanics line of work, or general purpose, as you would find in an average homeowners tool chest. Depending on the type of tool, they can be fairly inexpensive or high in cost. The great thing about most tools is that they last a very long time. Many get passed down from one generation to the next or from the jobsite to the home. Some tools may fall into disuse as they are no longer needed, which is where Metro Pawn & Gun comes into the equation. We offer cash in pawn and loan, or outright purchase, for your tools. Don’t need those old sockets any more? Bring them in and we’ll work out a deal. Power tools, hand tools, special tools – we like all tools!

Car Stereo – Why pay full Price?

Car Audio is one of those unique product categories its owners always seem to be in need of upgrading. By the time you’ve selected and installed your new system, there is already a better amplifier, or a more efficient subwoofer, or a head unit with more advanced features available. While some vehicle owners are quite satisfied with the stock factory stereo that came installed at the point of purchase, for others it’s a hobby in need of perpetual amendment and improvement. And there is certainly no lack of upgrades, as new and exciting products hit the store shelves with predictable regularity.

Wedding Rings – Why Pay full Price?

Let’s look at opportunity cost. This is a basic economic principle defined as the loss of potential gain from other alternatives when one alternative is chosen. You walk into a prestigious jewelry salon and find that wedding ring of your dreams, for $5000. While most people might not second-guess putting a ‘price’ on something as special as a wedding, the reality of the matter is that if you spend $3000 on one instead, you’ll have $2000 of potential resources to allocate to something else – like the catering, or the reception hall, or the honeymoon!

Spring has Sprung!

With the arrival of Spring, everyone is feeling that urge to get out of the house! After being snow and ice-bound for months thanks to our Minnesota weather, it’s time to feel warmth and sunshine and put away our snow shovels. With the new season come various activities that we can enjoy without being bundled up in a winter parka. Gardening, biking, fishing, golfing, working on outdoor projects, heading out to the range, boating or perhaps just taking a drive through the countryside with your windows open and the tunes rocking! Whatever the calling, we are just as excited about being done with winter as you are!
