How It All Started
When we started 10 years ago, Astoria Pawnshop had a singular goal in mind – become a trustworthy reseller that people would want to visit again and again. Ten years down, and we live that goal every single day. When Astoria Pawnshop opened doors in Astoria, Queens, we were dealing in antiques and gold. Given the high-value nature of these commodities, trust played an important part with each transaction.
We were invested in every item we bought, ensured they were not stolen and closely verified their quality. Sellers knew that if they brought in a good item, they will get a competitive price for it. They did not need to heckle. Buyers who came through Astoria Pawnshop’s doors could see the sheer thoughtfulness in every item that was up for sale in our shop. They knew that they did not have to comb through bad items to find the one gem. They were all gems. They understood that they will always be leaving with something amazing.
Becoming the New York City Favorite
Our customers wanted us to offer more products. So, we listened! We diversified our selection and included books and electronics. These were huge hits. Our volume increased manifold. After valuables, books, and electronics, we entered fashion. We started buying and selling handbags and sneakers.
Astoria Panwshop became a New York City favorite and the rest, as they say, is history. Over the years, we have seen upward growth and we have our customers to thank for it. It is this continued support that today we have opened another store in the area.
Simple for Sellers
We keep the buying process super simple. When an individual wishes to sell us an item, all we need from them is a valid ID to ascertain that they are 18+ and a proof of the ownership of the item they are selling.
We don’t quote a price on phone because we need to authenticate the products first. But, if we get enough information through images on text or email, we do provide a ballpark figure.
Attractive for Buyers
We take great care of the items we buy. We ensure they are not stolen and the experts in our team make sure that the product is of good quality and is bought at a good price. We verify and authenticate for our buyers.
So, when a buyer steps in, they are often not able to believe the price tag they see. For the quality we offer, we are the best value available out there in the market.
