Thinking about gifts for the Christmas season?

The gift-giving traditions of the Christmas season can be trying at times.

Do you want to endure the long lines, parking hassles, or coming up empty because the item you wanted just sold out? Even with online retail being a part of how we shop these days, it still comes with its own set of issues. Will the gift you ordered arrive in time?

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.

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!

Understanding the Pawn Process

“Pawning” is a process in which you bring an item into the pawn shop in exchange for a cash loan. For example, you might pawn a gold ring as collateral for a $150 loan. If you repay the loan by a predetermined date, you can retrieve your gold ring. The loan repayment amount will include interest and fees that are typically regulated by the state. You also have the option to extend the repayment time frame, although this will incur continuing interest. If you fail to repay the money on time, the pawn shop takes ownership of the ring and can offer it for resale. A large percentage of pawned items are reclaimed by their owners, but some are forfeited and thus provide inventory for the pawn shop to sell. Pawn shops also purchase items outright to resell, which is another way to provide clients with the cash they need and to acquire inventory for the store.
