Pawn Shop FAQs
Why Shop at a Genie's Outlet?
Pawn shops buy used merchandise and offer it for sale at a significant discount. You can find great deals at a pawn shop that you can’t find anywhere else, with items often selling at half the retail price. We also carry a wide selection of inventory, so you’ll still have plenty of options. You may even find something you can’t get at a department store, such as a piece of jewelry with unique history or antiques and collectibles, coins, guns, and much more..
What Types of Things Can I Sell?
Pawn shops will buy a wide range of precious jewelry, including watches, gold, silver and platinum. We may even buy old pieces that are broken or missing precious stone if we feel there is value. Other precious metals such as silverware and coins can be sold to Genie's. We also will buy items such as electronics, collectibles, sporting equipment and antiques.
What Should I Expect When Selling?
When you sell any type of item to a pawn shop, you’ll need to bring identification with you. Valid forms of ID include a driver’s license, an ID card from your state, or a passport. The staff at the shop can conduct jewelry appraisals and will give you an offer on your items. If you accept the offer, we will typically give you cash on the spot for the sale.
How Does Pawning Work?
If you need a loan, you can choose to pawn your items rather than sell them. Pawning allows you to provide your items as collateral for a loan to quickly and conveniently get some cash. Once you bring in your items and they assess them, they’ll offer you the amount they are willing to lend and when you are required to repay your loan. If you do not return to repay your loan, the only consequence is that they will keep your items to sell.
