Pawn shops are among the types of retail outlets that can outlive slow economic periods. Indeed, a large part of the revenue generation comes from lending against assets. With such being short-term loans, relatively high interest rates apply.


Products are purchased at low cost and sold at prices below that of new products. People perceive items they buy in pawn shops as bargains, even when they only pay slightly less than for new ones. As such, the return market is a given. At the same time, the risk of loss when lending money to customers against their assets is low since the pawn price offered is usually 30% to maximum 50% of the item value. Even if the customer fails to pay for the item can it be sold at a profit.
