Pawn Service in Baton Rouge for Over 20 Years
About American Pawn
American Pawn is a family-owned and -operated pawnshop with two convenient Baton Rouge, Louisiana, locations. The company was started by Joel and Mia Wallace in 1992. Initially, American Pawn was a small store specializing in buying and selling jewelry and small electronics. Through the years, we have grown into a full-service pawn store. Now, we offer a variety of specialty services, such as tax refund services, refund-anticipation loans and diamond wholesaling.
American Pawn is always happy to search for a hard-to-find item and provides loans on most items of value. Our company works with new and estate jewelry. Our subsidiary company, Heirloom Diamonds, offers wholesale pricing on large and small quality diamonds. Joel holds a diamonds grading certificate from GIA, which is the company considered to set the standards for the industry. In addition, we are members of the National Pawnbrokers Association and Louisiana Pawnbrokers Association.
Customers must be 18 years or older to pawn, sell or trade with our company. We require valid picture ID for all transactions. We report all acquisitions to the police. We maintain all required licenses and insurance. We are an equal opportunity employer.
