The economy is tough for many people right now, but Brad Shain says that's not why the largest local pawnshop company chose this year to make its biggest expansion move ever.
He says it's because 15-year-old Pawn X-Change waited until it fully developed the managerial know-how needed to lend money on everything from used DVDs to a $5,000 watch.
"To scale this business is tricky - it's got a lot of moving parts," says Shain, the president and CEO of MaXit Financial, which owns Pawn X-Change.
...
Nonetheless, there's a steady clientele of people who "just can't make that paycheck stretch," Shain says.
He points out that financially strapped consumers are charged more at payday lenders.
...
A bag pulled out at random turns out to hold a Cartier watch - "probably a $5,000 watch," Shain says - that has eight 90-day pawn tags on it.
...
To keep experienced employees, MaXit pays full health insurance for those who've been there 11 months, and offers a 50 percent 401(k) match, Shain says.
The economy's current woes have not brought a huge burst of new business, according to Shain.

In fact, Brad Shain, the owner of this growing corporation says: "We try to make it palatable for not only the customer, but for people who are there for loans.

In the interest of full-disclosure, Brad Shain, the owner of Pawn X-Change, and I have been friends since 1980 (we met in college). I have watched his business grow from one single pawn shop in Shoreline, WA into a successful enterprise. I went back to an October 1998 article in the Puget Sound Business Journal about Pawn X-Change and was amazed at how some of his dreams then have materialized today. What truly amazes me is that Brad has maintained a single-minded determination to transform the pawn business into a place that helps people who are often struggling financially and, yet, treats them with dignity. Nicely done!
