HOUSTON, TX, July 20, 2011 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Rick Harrison and his hit TV show, Pawn Stars, have captured the fascination of the public. The show has helped to demystify the pawn shop industry, so as the economy teeters in and out of recession, more consumers looking for cheap items turn to pawn shops to save money. In this trend, a new company called PawnSearcher has surfaced as a way for buyers or collectors to search pawn shops from the comfort of home. The site is a fantastic way for collectors and deal hunters to search pawn shops all over the US, looking for hard-to-find items.
For example, suppose that you are looking for a Les Paul guitar or a Remington 870 shotgun but don't want to drive from pawn shop to pawn shop. A simple visit to PawnSearcher.com allows you to submit your request, which is then sent to hundreds of pawn shops throughout the US. If a participating pawn shop has this item, you'll receive an email with a price. And hopefully you'll get multiple quotes so you can compare prices. So instead of eBay where consumers bid against each other to drive prices up, PawnSearcher increases pawn shop competition and helps lower the cost for the consumer. Says Jeff Epstein, company president, "With PawnSearcher it's a win-win for the consumer and pawn shop. Consumers can now search hundreds of pawn shops quite easily and pawn shops get sales leads from all over the country. The Internet has transformed so many industries and PawnSearcher has the potential to greatly impact the pawn industry."
Today's economy has affected pawn sales, as it has most other industries. Thus, pawn shops are overflowing with used tools, guitars, stereos, watches, jewelry and electronics. This creates a great buying opportunity and deep discounts. So instead of bidding up the price on an auction, start a quest on PawnSearcher and see what happens. Worst case, no pawn shops have your items, but what if you get multiple offers for something you collect? That's when the fun really starts.
Pawnsearcher is a website where consumers can send inquiries to pawn shops all over the US. For more information, please contact us at 281-741-9926.
