I would highly think twice before spending money here. Example. Black cruiser 4 sale, with dented rim and sun faded seat. Same exact bike BRAND NEW is $154 @ walmart. Get the heck outta here! Dont be a fool.

Review №2

Called earlier in the day so i could plan when to leave work.. was told they were open til 6. Walked up to the door at 4:20. Open sign was still on. Door locked. Looked through the vinyl and saw 3 people standing inside. None of them acknowledged me. After 3 minutes of standing there, waiting for any sort of communication or acknowledgement, the open sign turned off.No communication at all.A simple sorry, we are closing early for labor day, would have gone a long way.The 3 employees there today need some customer service training.If I had known they were closing early, I would have planned accordingly.

Ive always had a stigma about shopping at pawn shops but after stopping by loan star pawn shop, my option has drastically changed. Their vibrant employee david, showed me around and informed me of all the amazing deals they offered. I had an amazing experience and with all the cool items they offer i know I will for sure be returning!

Review №4

Love Loan star pawnshop in PC. Very friendly, knowledgeable, with Immaculate customer service skills. Thnk u Tammie, u are awesome.

Review №5

David is a new hire as he was letting me know but man was he a total Professional! Great kid and hard work ethic, can’t wait to come back and be not only advised but treated super well. Admire the confidence in this young man.

Review №6

Amazing experience here! I came in looking for my very first gun with not much insight as to what I was looking for, but a very knowledgable and kind employee by the name of David found the perfect fit for me! He recommended a Glock 43x that they had just gotten in which happened to be the perfect size for me and just what I was looking for. I am currently saving up money and will be returning very soon to purchase!

We came in to see bianca at loan star pawns today and she blessed us tremendously by giving us a great offer for the tools we needed a loan on. If you are in a bind and need a quick loan, Check loan star pawn out!

Review №8

I can say every time i go there i always come out buying something. It’s my favorite pawn shop. The staff are professional and always willing to help. I have purchased several tv’s, guns and lawn equipment. I just love them!! I highly recommend them. This is the only pawn shop i go to.

Review №9

Really nice people. Called beforehand with the product I had to sell. They did some quick research and told me to come in. Paid my asking price. Great gun selection and also have ammo! Recommend this shop to everyone in the area!

Review №10

I was very impressed with my experience. Amy assisted me and went above and beyond the standards youll encounter anywhere else and her work partner Bianca was a delight as well. Very friendly, knowledgeable and professional. Great prices, extremely classy atmosphere and high quality merchandise. I wont go to another. Keep up the great work!

Review №11

Another 5 star location from Loan Star Pawn! Organized, friendly, and educated staff. Check it out for yourself, you wont be disappointed!

Review №12

Very friendly staff and quick and professional will be returning

Review №13

Dont even waste your time bringing your guns here to sell. They lowball hard.

Review №14

Luke was so wonderful. He is very helpful and I would recommend him to my friends and family. Thank you !

Review №15

Really great place and awesome staff members who are really helpful and full of great energy. I needed help picking out my item and Luke Q went above and beyond. In times like these its nice to have someone be kind and understanding.I will definitely be back, thanks to Luke and his courteous help.

Review №16

If I could have given 10 I would. Great customer service from Bianca, she was extremely knowledgeable, attentive and kept me laughing. Didn’t know that a pawnshop could be so inviting. Will definitely be back.

Review №17

Rude and dismiss the last few times i went in. dont waste your time, go to the North Port location where theyll take the time to look up your items, they had no problem finding my items unlike here. both the girl and guy are just lazy.

Review №18

What a great experience! Super service and makes gun transfer a piece of cake. Friendly and fast customer service.

Review №19

Affordable. really cool people. worked with me to make sure I was satisfied!

Review №20

***BUYERS BEWARE ***Surely Staff is very friendly and polite. HOWEVER, when it comes to appraising they either not experienced enough or lowballing on purpose. I randomly select businesses to visit to review their services. Was very disappointed with the offer they made on the gold and silver items I told them I wanted to sell and acted like I had no clue how much my items were worth. I had over 10 items and decided to start with what I knew was less expensive. After I was told that each of my gold items was between $10-50 when in fact I knew the true value of those items if sold as a scrap I decided to show them the 3 very expensive 18k rings each valued and appraised over $4,000 and each ring has apprx 1.8 ct certified diamonds in it. They offered $200 for each.Even if you remove diamonds and sell it as a scrap, still it would value over $700 for the total weight and today’s gold price for 18k gold.I highly recommend to take your gold and silver elsewhere and make sure to weigh your gold and know what is the gold value is not to let them fool you to give up your gold penny’s on the dollar.

With everything going on in the world its easy to understand that sometimes you just need a little cash to float you until your next payday. Well thats exactly what the folks at Loan Star do. They are really willing to work with you and take their time to go over their policies and what you can expect. They even offer a mobile app in which you can pay on your items or even shop their wide selection of goods. You can find some really great things, from boat anchors to Star Trek figurines, jewelry to rifles. They have sales frequently and almost all of their electronics are current. They take their time with you and accept a wide variety of items that they will pay you cash for. Ive had to use their service a few a times and I wont do business with anyone else. Theyre fair, consistent, and up front. The staff is knowledgeable and friendly and take their time with you. If youre new to the process I highly recommend them. Ive been doing business with them for at least 2 years, both purchasing and loans. For a pawn shop they offer reasonable rates and many times if youre purchasing items they will work with you on the price. They have several locations too. Falling on hard times happens to everyone at some point. Its great to know that there are people who can actually give you a little help once in a while. Im grateful for the staff and urge you to give them a shot. They offer layaway or cash and carry and you never know what youll run across in the store.

Review №71

This place is great and Luke was super helpful

Review №72

The employees that work here are very courtesy, and very helpful. The prices on their power tools, or any other tool you want to buy, are priced to move. Have purchased tools from them and you cannot beat the other prices.They will even deal with you if youre not happy with the price you see, just simply ask them and they will work with you. Always remember to when you bring something to pawn it has to be yours. You cannot Pawn items for somebody else. Nor will they take anything if you cannot prove it is yours. Just remember dont get upset with them if they wont pawn something for you if it is not yours, for that is the state laws.Stop by go on in. They have a lot of items to choose from. From televisions to a screwdriver.I gave him a five star, which Ill give them another five star. Just on the courtesy of the employees, that makes the store.

Review №73

Review №88

Luke was very helpful and knowledgeable! Will return .

Review №89

These guys are absolutely the best! Tammy and everyone else there have gone out of their way to help us every time Ive been in the store. My family has suffered one financial blow after the other and no matter what the situation theyve always been there and helped us. Im definitely not accustomed to finding that kind of compassion at a pawn shop. Its obvious that the employees genuinely care about their clientele and theyre not trying to take your stuff. Loan Star has won my loyalty for life and Ill tell everyone that will listen. Thanks again guys. Youve made a very difficult time in our life a little easier.
