We Are Kelowna's Oldest Pawn Shop

Every year, when we get our new business license in the mail, we frame it to hang on the wall. And it’s an annual reminder that we are the oldest pawn shop in Kelowna!  We also realized that over 25 other pawn shops have closed since we opened our doors.

What happened to their customers?  What happened to the items in pawn?  Most people don’t realize that pawn shops are all about trust.   You trust your items will be safe.  You trust the store will be there when you go to retrieve your pawn.  

This really highlights the importance of stability and safety.  Premier is the oldest and most stable store in Kelowna.  Never bought, never sold, same owners for 27 years and counting.  We’re the only vault secured pawn shop in Kelowna.  We’re also the only pawn shop that INSURES our clients.    

It’s a bit of perspective realizing we’re the old kids on the block.   If you’re a longtime Kelowna resident this list might be familiar to you.  They’ve all sold, closed, merged or moved:
