    I think you guys missed out on maybe one of the best pawn store chain in the midwest. Motor City Pawn Brokers has always treated me right for 25 years now. They also have 4 locations.

    I would like to put a vote in for Garden City Exchange. It’s very clean, bright and unintimidating, and the employees are friendly. They also gave me the most money for my merchandise.
