What Are Pawn Shops?

For some people, a pawnshop can be difficult to define.

There are many false stereotypes and misunderstandings concerning our industry. At Capital Cash Pawn & Jewelry we understand that our primary role is as a bank for people in the Raleigh – Durham Triangle community, who are looking for that short-term access to cash.

We offer value to our customers by making loans, purchasing valuables and providing high quality popular items at low prices.

We have compiled a list to help define what a pawn shop actually is.
