Summary
Find out the dates, history and traditions of National Pawnbrokers Day

Pawnbrokers are businesses or individuals that provide loans to customers in exchange for collateral, typically in the form of jewelry, electronics, or other valuable items. The customer can either redeem the collateral for the amount of the loan plus interest, or the pawnbroker can sell the collateral if the loan is not repaid. Pawnbrokers have been around for centuries and can be found all over the world.

When a customer brings an item to a pawnbroker, the pawnbroker will assess the value of the item and offer a loan based on a percentage of that value. The loan is usually for a short term, typically a few months, and the customer is expected to repay the loan with interest in that time. If the customer is unable to repay the loan, the pawnbroker may sell the collateral to recoup the costs.

Pawnbrokers have been heavily regulated by governments in many countries, mainly for the protection of consumers. The regulations vary by jurisdiction, but typically include requirements for pawnbrokers to be licensed, to keep detailed records of transactions, and to follow specific rules for the storage and disposal of unredeemed collateral.

In recent years, pawnbroking has become more mainstream and accepted by society, with many pawnbrokers operating in a professional and ethical manner, providing loans and other financial services to customers who may not be able to get credit from traditional banks.
