Los Angeles, California (PRWEB) August 30, 2013
As August draws to a close, it is now a time when students begin flocking to local supply chains, discount stores, and even pawn shops.
To many, the thought of searching for items at a pawn shop may seem unfathomable. But in order to save money, many students and parents are turning to pawn shops.
As Pico Union Pawn has seen this trend of students looking for supplies at their stores, they have announced a huge installment of electronics that they have received. These electronics come at highly discounted prices than regular electronics stores. Pico Union Pawn has a wide assortment of Dell, Apple, Sony, Toshiba, HP, Lenovo, Acer, and many more.
According to the National Retail Federation, 14% of students plan to shop at a thrift store to save money. Thanks to programming, such as “Pawn Stars” on the History Channel, pawn shops have been able to shed their reputation as seedy refuges to reputable businesses.
“Students, and more importantly, parents, will be able to find huge discounts on Dell and Apple laptops, iPods, and many smartphones. We understand that shoppers are looking to save money, and we can help them do that,” said Robert Morelli, owner of Pico Union Pawn.
Another popular item with back to school shoppers is scientific calculators. Pico Union Pawn also offers many different calculators at a highly discounted rate, which can save parents up to 50% on retail price.
For parents that are worried about buying “hot property”, Morelli says, “Each seller has to give an ID and a thumbprint. If someone tries to sell stolen property, they will get caught.”
Pico Union Pawn sells everything for back to school shoppers such as: electronics, scientific calculators, musical instruments, and cameras.
