i won’t go anywhere else!!!! i’ve gone to other pawn stores and everytime im told i’ll get 40$ for a piece of jewelry worth 1000 plus!!! so walking in i was preparing for the worst. and i was extremely shocked at how much they offered me for old jewelry or even jewelry with missing gems. i’ve been there twice and everytime im greeted with amazing customer service and always offered top $ for items i no longer want!! thank you so much i will be back and will never go to another pawn shop!!!

Only place I will go from now on. They give the best value for your items. Also, staff is very friendly and helpful. There has been times I couldn’t make it in on time to pick-up my items due to work, and they always work with me without any hesitation. I really would never go anywhere else again! Honestly, I can’t say enough good things about this business, and never once had a bad experience here.

Mike and the gang down at Meriden pawn are second to none they really care about people yes it's about making a living for them but they're really concerned about our welfare in other words they will go out of their way to make sure I'm happy they really do care. I would highly recommend anybody that needs the services of a pawn shop to go to Mike first and Meriden pawn and let me be clear not just Mike any of the staff are excellent I would give them six stars if I could

They always have a wide variety of items that interest me. Constantly adding new merchandise to their store. Very fair with loan pricing and have always come across as truly wanting to help their customers. If you need a couple days extension to pick up your loan, they are always willing to go above and beyond to help you out. Have been and will continue to be a lifelong patron.

I didn’t buy, sell or pawn anything in the store. I did go in looking to sell some jewelry that had some sentimental value and didn’t want to let it go for just any price. I ended up leaving and going to another pawn shop to get a different price. Although, I’m choosing to hold onto the jewelry, Meriden Pawn gave me the best price by $100. They were kind when I said “no, thank you” and made me feel comfortable the entire time. Thanks for your time, greatly appreciated.

I can honestly say this is by far the best pawn shop in Meriden CT by a mile. Mike the owner is a great guy and always takes care of me even if its his employees Frank or Amir. They give the best prices weather you pawn or sell you're items. I had gallbladder surgery back on November 13th and have been out of work since and Mike helped me out so I could actually get my stuff out. He cares about his customers especially those who do repeat business. I will continue to do business with MIke and his shop no matter what happens.

I have done business with them many times and they have always been great. They have even extended the payment due date for me more than once when I couldn't make it by the due date. I have nothing negative to say about this place. Don't expect them to pay you more than what the gold value is at the time of your visit and remember that they don't buy diamonds, they buy gold...just saying!! Have a blessed day everyone!!
