Why Premier Pawn ?

Premier should be your pawn shop choice - here's why

Selecting a pawn shop can be difficult, and not everyone discloses the full picture.  At Premier we believe in open transparency so we post our terms on-line.  This let’s you compare against our competitors and similar products like payday loans.  Be cautious about any pawn shop that won’t publicly post their rates and terms.

At Premier your items are insured – you may be surprised to find that most competitors don’t protect you.  Ask whether they have insured YOUR items.  Read the pledge contract and be alert for phrases like “We are not responsible for destruction of goods by fire, theft, burglary, mysterious disappearance . . .” or “Articles are entirely at owners peril”. Choose wisely – not all pawn shops are the same.  

As Kelowna’s most established pawn shop we offer many advantages:

  1. GET MORE MONEY.  We are GIA / DCA trained with decades of experience – we can pay for diamonds that other stores can’t. 
  2. SAVE YOUR MONEY.  Pay less when you borrow here, Premier has the lowest rates in the Kelowna.
  3. BE SAFE.  We are the ONLY pawn shop that insures client merchandise (ask for details)!
  4. BE SECURE.  We are the ONLY pawn shop that has an onsite 48 ton bank vault securing your jewellery.
  5. BE CONFIDENT: Kelowna’s ONLY pawn shop that has X-ray gold testing to get you the most accurate values.
  6. FREE REMINDERS: The only pawn shop that texts you for early pickup discounts and before a pawn is due.
  7. PROFESSIONALISM.  We’re Kelowna’s ONLY BBB A+ rated pawn shop.  We’re also members of the National Pawn Association (US), Canadian Jewellers Association, Diamond Council of America and Jewellers of America.
