Holiday shopping time is fast approaching. It’s almost time to check your budget and gear up for a shopping spree.
But before you visit your favorite big-box retailer this year, consider another great holiday gift shopping option: your local Philadelphia pawn shop, Cash Express.
There are plenty of reasons to choose a place like Cash Express for your holiday shopping — here are a few.
1. Our Specialities Are Perfect Holiday Gifts
At Cash Express, our favorite items also make the best holiday gifts. We love jewelry, precious metals, precious stones, luxury watches, antiques, and other high-end items.
Naturally, giving any of these as a holiday gift is an excellent way to express your love to family and friends this season.
2. Get Great Gifts For Less
If you wanted to buy a fancy watch or beautiful piece of jewelry from a watch store or jewelry dealer, prepare to pay the big bucks.
On the other hand, Cash Express can offer these and other similar items in excellent (basically like new) condition for far, far less. You won’t have to break the bank to get the gifts your loved ones and friends deserve.
3. Not Just “Expensive” Things
Sure, we love shiny and typically expensive items… but we have plenty of variety beyond that. For example, we also sell computers, electronics, tools, and musical instruments. All of these items make perfect gifts for the tech whiz, gamer, handyman, or musician in your life.
As a result of all this variety, you won’t have to jump from store to store. You can simply stop into Cash Express and finish most, if not all of your holiday shopping this year.
4. We Can Bolster Your Holiday Budget
Need a little extra room in your holiday shopping budget? Got any items you don’t need or are willing to pawn?
We can help you stretch your budget this fall and winter if you bring in items to pawn or sell to us. We especially love to buy gold, computers, antiques, watches, coins, and tools. However, bring in other items if you’d like — we’re happy to provide you a fair price or loan amount, and get you your money as early as today!
With all that said… if you want to knock out your holiday shopping fast and for less… and/or you have some items you’d like to pawn to bolster your holiday budget… stop by Cash Express in Philadelphia today! We’re happy to have you.

August is over, which means summer’s coming to an end. But that also means the holidays will be here much faster than you expect. Still, it is only the start of September. Is it too early to pick out holiday gifts? Not so. Now could actually be the perfect time. Let us explain why.
Shopping Starts Earlier This Year
After the events of last year, more people than ever are looking to shop online where possible. They’ve found it to be incredibly convenient. Consequently, many stores are pushing their holiday sales forward, earlier into the year. That means more people are shopping earlier for their holiday gifts. On top of that, recent shortages and supply chain issues have made it hard for stores to keep certain items on the shelves. This is especially true for electronics.
That means it’s fine — and probably ideal — for you to start hunting for holiday items as soon as September (which just started a few days ago).
How to Avoid the Shopping Crowds This Holiday Season (And Earlier)
Despite the massive explosion in online commerce, plenty of people are still going to go into stores to grab their gift items. There’s just something about shopping in person that can’t turn everyone into online shoppers. If you want to skip the crowds, though, we have a great idea for you: Visit a pawn shop! Pawn stores are underrated places to grab gifts for plenty of reasons.
Pawn shops have all sorts of cool and unique items. Many of them make great gifts. Got a handy husband or father? Pick up some power tools. Maybe your kids want some video games for the holidays. Plenty of pawn shops sell electronics. Or perhaps there’s a musician in your life. Guitars, drums, and other instruments are popular at pawn stores. Whatever it is, a pawn shop might just have it.
Less Known — Fewer Crowds
Most people will head to big-box retailers to get their holiday gifts. Fewer people know how great pawn shops can be for this… meaning crowds won’t be as big of a worry. You can skip the long lines at major retailers and stay safer while you’re at it.
Pawn shops sell used items — even slightly used — meaning it’ll cost a lot less than if you bought it newer elsewhere. Not to mention you may be able to negotiate.
Nowhere is this more apparent than with jewelry. At a pawn shop, you could find barely-used jewelry for a massive discount compared to a jewelry store. What a perfect holiday gift for your loved one and your wallet!
Speaking of jewelry and other shiny things, that’s what we love at Cash Express in Philadelphia. Whether you’re shopping for the holidays, offloading some jewelry or metals to boost your holiday budget, or both, we’d be happy to see you. Come visit us today!
