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? Will it make it through the delivery process without damage?
Brand new power tools are expensive! An average power tool can easily cost hundred of dollars and up. Many trades rely on numerous tools for their livelihood. Mechanics, construction workers, handymen, and even the typical homeowner employ a variety of power tools on a regular basis. Metro Pawn & Gun offers an alternative to these steep prices while maintaining the functionality that is needed.
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.
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!
“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.
Tools are an integral part of every day life. We use them to construct, assemble and maintain nearly every aspect of our environment – from our homes to our vehicles to our appliances and our furniture. They repair what is broken, and improve what is not. Life is made easier when tools perform otherwise strenuous or laborious tasks. Whether general in their purpose, or specialized in their function, there is a tool for just about any job you can imagine.
Pawn shops get a bad rap. While they certainly offer much-needed items at low prices, they’re not necessarily places of bad business, cheap items and scams. Despite being local establishments, pawn shops have a high amount of resources available. They use these resources to abide by the law, hold competitive rates and uphold community values. We’re debunking the top five myths surrounding pawn shops, one fact at a time.
If you're short on cash, you might be considering either selling or pawning some of your collectibles. Collectible items -- whether antique or recent -- may often seem to have fairly arbitrary values and can be very difficult to deal in. Here are a few of the most common mistakes sellers often run into.
With the holiday season upon us, giving (and receiving) gifts is part of the cheer during this time of the year. No matter the winter blues, the inconvenient blizzards and the frosty car windows – a cup of steaming hot chocolate and classic holiday movies with the family makes everything right.
