The Pawn Process

Convert your valuables into instant cash!

Pawnbroking is a fast, easy and fuss-free solution for your short-term cash needs. Simply bring your precious items – gold, diamonds, gemstones, luxury timepieces, electronics, instruments or tools into our store and we can offer you instant cash without filling in forms, credit checks or no waiting for approval.

Your items will then be stored safely in our strong room / safe during the length of your pawnbroking contract, up to a maximum of 12 months with the option of renewal. You can be rest assured that we will never sell your items during this period, and the pledged item(s) will remain yours during the entire process.

You can pay up your loan at our store at your convenience and your items will be returned to you in the original condition that was being pawned.

The process for lending is regulated, and enforced by the Ontario Pawnbrokers Act.
As a family operation, G.W. Thompson Jeweller & Pawnbroker Inc. adheres to all requirements and responsibilities of the act.
