Cleveland, Georgia (PRWEB) December 10, 2011
Collectors, penny-pinchers and 'just plain smart' shoppers discovered eBay in 1995. Fueled by unique items, great buys and the ease of shopping online from home, eBay soared in popularity and remains a dominant presence still today. Competition has been on the rise for eBay with sites like Amazon taking root and the public receptiveness to discounted prices found on cyber shopping sites. Newest on the scene in the list of eBay competitors and online shopping deals is RicksPullList.com, kind of a mix between eBay and Craigslist, but much easier to navigate. Making its debut in December 2011, Rick's Pull List is offering everything under the sun, from Chanel sunglasses to gold-plated serving sets to a 1974 convertible Stingray Corvette. With inventory updated weekly, a simplified shopping and buying process and competitive pricing, eBay may no longer be the king.
A defining element of RicksPullList.com is the source of the items for sale. Owner of the online shopping site, Ricky Ferguson, also operates Platinum Pawn and Jewelry in Cleveland, Georgia. Many of the items listed online are from the pawn pull list of his shop; hence, Rick's Pull List. "There's nothing else like it," states Ferguson. "Shopping pawn inventory is unlike any other shopping experience. You never know what's coming into or being pulled for the list. You can find a lot of really unique items and rare collectibles." Even more intriguing, Ferguson has joined with other pawn stores throughout the state to list their products on the site as well, creating an immense statewide network of suppliers and an effort to increase commerce and economic flow to these businesses. Although still in its infancy, the projected growth of this site is phenomenal with plans to incorporate pawn businesses nationwide.
Essentially a virtual swap meet, Platinum Pawn plus additional pawn outlets equals a massive selection for the public. Whether new, used, handcrafted or hard to come by, RicksPullList.com is brandishing an impressive beginning. "We're really excited about the new site. We'll be adding thousands of items over the next couple of months and continuing to build our pawn network," states Ferguson. As businesses look for ways to be creative in this economic downturn, Rick's Pull List is born, consumers luck out on fabulous finds and eBay discovers a new challenger.
