Southfield, MI (PRWEB) July 21, 2014
There's no doubt that pawnshops are an important part of the American landscape. With over 25 million consumers relying on the multi-billion dollar pawnshop industry for help addressing short term cash emergencies and the number steadily rising, the need to make improvements in the pawn process is a very real and important one. Stepping up to solve this problem, expertly, has been PawnGuru.com, a new online platform that greatly improves the buying, selling and pawning process for consumers and pawnshops alike. PawnGuru.com allows consumers to list their items they wish to pawn or sell on the PawnGuru.com platform. Instantly local shops are notified of the item available and can seamlessly make an offer back to the consumer. PawnGuru.com allows the consumer from the comfort of their home to obtain multiple offers on their item, so they can choose the best and most convenient offer, and get their much needed funds.
“PawnGuru.com has one simple goal, to build technology to bridge the gap for the unbanked and under banked consumer,” commented David Stiebel, co-founder of the platform. “We believe that with the current trends in tighter credit and the increase in the number of US households being considered unbanked and under banked, PawnGuru is well positioned to redefine the pawn shop experience, and to create a better cycle for both consumers and the shops themselves. It's a win/win for everyone concerned.”
According to the company, PawnGuru is as easy to use as it is revolutionary. With PawnGuru.com the hassle, headache and potential expense of having to travel to multiple shops only to get inadequate offers is removed from the equation when a person is trying to pawn or sell something for much-needed cash. Pawnshops benefit just as well, by bringing in revenue from new customers who may have otherwise never even stepped through their shop doors. Dickie Smith from Dick’s Pawnshop in Myrtle Beach SC recently joined Pawn Guru and said “Pawn guru seems like an awesome idea, we are always looking for new customers”
PawnGuru is currently launched in 15 cities in 10 states, with more on the way. The rapid expansion is only expected to continue.
Both consumers and pawnshops have given the platform consistent passionate feedback.
