What Makes our Pawn Shop so Interesting?

We all know that pawn shops, ours included, deal in many common commodities. There are firearms, coins, jewelry, tools, home electronics, car audio and many other products you would expect to find at a pawn shop. But one of the most interesting things is that our inventory is always in motion, and by the very nature of a business like this, we sometimes come across unique items that do not fit into our general product categorization.

Snowed in? Come see us!

People living in Minnesota are generally used to winter. We are used to snow and ice and bitter cold temperatures. We can drive in blizzards and still get to work on time. We love our snow mobiles and other winter sports, and the weather doesn’t usually crimp our style. We bundle up and carry on.

Preparing for Winter

Living in Minnesota has many advantages – beautiful scenery, many outdoor activities and a wonderful summer climate. But then there is winter – a welcomed season for skiers and snowmobilers, but also a bear for managing snow, ice and the typical winter commute. It’s not unusual to get pummeled by a fast moving blizzard between the times you go to sleep and when you awaken, leaving your driveway and roads buried in snow. While an armada of snow plows sets out to clear the roads in the wee hours of the morning, you still have to unearth your vehicle and clear a path to that road.

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!

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!

Once the snow is gone and the first greenery of the season becomes visible, our thoughts will leave winter far behind. Spring fever will be upon us, and Spring cleaning goes hand-in-hand with this fresh new beginning.

The Tools of Winter

When we think of tools, drills and sockets and hammers and saws usually come to mind. But tools encompass much more than the machineries we use to fix or build things. All manner of specialized implements fall into this category, including lawn maintenance equipment and snow removal apparatus.
