Why a Pawn Shop?

Many customers ask how we got our start.

Truth is, unemployment affected us just as it has many of our customers. Tobey found himself without a job and a paycheck in March 2011, faced with what to do next.

Discovering a growing need for short-term cash (and great deals) in Charlottesville, Tobey decided to try something different.
