Crown Jewelers & Pawnbrokers Celebrating 30 Years in Business in Ormond Beach
By: Marketing 2 go
"I was presented an opportunity to buy my own pawnshop after working as a pawnbroker at another store in Volusia County for nearly 15 years," said Paul. "I've always enjoyed working with customers and the challenge of evaluating the broad range of merchandise they bring in," he added. The original store was Max's Gun Shop. Paul changed the name and quickly turned the business into a full-service pawnshop. Although the business possesses a Federal firearms license, he eventually phased out the sale of firearms.
With 44 years in the industry, Paul found that pawnshops are surprisingly unaffected by the economy. When the economy is in a downturn, people go to pawnshops looking for financial assistance and in more prosperous economic climates, many customers search for great deals and unusual items. Reality TV shows, such as Pawn Stars, have helped educate the general public regarding pawnshops.
Mr. Howes views his business as a benefit to the community. People come to him with financial struggles and he offers help in the form of short-term collateral loans. Also, when people are shopping for quality merchandise and lower prices, he takes pride in offering discounted prices, oftentimes half of retail.
To thank their customers, the company will celebrate their 30-year anniversary with a special event including a ribbon cutting and refreshments on September 21st at 11:00 a.m. Crown Jewelers & Pawnbrokers is also planning an exterior building renovation later this year to help keep the City of Ormond Beach looking beautiful.
