About Us



Premier is Kelowna’s upscale pawn shop: part retail, part financial institution and completely unique.  Founded in 1995 we have the pleasure of being Kelowna’s oldest pawn shop.  This provides our clients with stability and expertise that is uncommon in today’s transitory world.  We are also decades long members of the Better Business Bureau (A+ rated) and National Pawn Association.

We’re more than a ‘pawn shop’ however.  As members of the Canadian Jewellers Association, Diamond Council of America and Jewellers of America we are home to some of Kelowna’s finest jewellery.   We stock hundreds of luxury pieces including large diamonds (2-3 carat) and pre-owned Rolex.  We offer boutique inventory at “pawn shop” prices.  All of our large diamonds are independently appraised by GEMSCAN, the largest gem lab in Canada.

We are responsible corporate citizens and work closely with local charities in their fundraising efforts, most notably the Kelowna Women’s Shelter.  We believe in supporting the community that has been so generous to us. 


STORE GALLERY – A Look At What We Do

This is a small glimpse of our store and some of the items we carry.  It changes daily so we always recommend visiting or following us on Facebook.  Most pawn shops deal in tires and toasters but our specialty is diamonds, luxury watches and designer fashion.   


We’ve been featured in local media and print many times:

  • In 2015 we were featured by Business Elite Canada Magazine for our 20th anniversary.  You can read the PDF article HERE.
  • In 2019 we were featured by Today’s Pawnbroker magazine for our charity work (article picture below).
