I've been using Pawn Shops as a source for short term CASH loans for years and years now. This pawn shop (R & J) in particular is very nice and clean...the nicest LOOKING pawn shop I've ever been in. Most Pawn shops are dark and dingy with old and dirty merchandise displayed here and there with a big Luigi kind of guy behind the counter with a grumpy attitude!! If you are looking for a place you can feel good about leaving your expensive jewelry or electronics then go here like I did. I pawned my college class ring and my laptop (other places I called wouldn't even consider loaning on my laptop or blackberry) and I got the instant cash I needed to take care of my situation. When I walked in I was instantly greeted by a nice Asian guy with a "hello, what brings you in today?" and I felt like they actually cared that I walked into their business. The loan process was fast and easy, about 15 minutes total, and I got the $600 cash I needed. The best part is that the interest was way lower than if I took a cash advance off my credit card, and this loan will NOT show up on my credit report or anywhere else for that matter...it's totally confidential and secure. These people have been around since 1978 and they really know what they are doing...I just can't say enough good things about my new favorite pawn shop. When in need of instant cash go see R & J, you won't be sorry. Good luck, I hope this info was helpful because I know that pawning can be an stressfull when you don't feel the greatest about the people or shop you're going to for help.
