When I had a totally unexpected and devastating financial emergency that has affected me for months, this business made it possible for me to pay a couple of crucial big bills. I never thought I'd have to "resort" to a pawn shop but they made it easy for me to get cash when my credit score was affected and I couldn't get equity out of my own home. Nobody else was there to help me, certainly not my bank! I was able to get my possessions (collateral) back within the time frame allotted after the crisis was (almost) over and I'm very glad they were (and are) there. I resent the implication that going there for help makes me "less than" in some judgmental eyes. Needing money isn't a sin or a crime. Walk in my moccasins.... Thank you, Pawn Shop of Ventura.

I enjoy going to this store regularly to buy jewelry. They have a great selection of pieces in all price ranges, are very knowledgable, and are fair with pricing. It's like shopping down in the diamond district-they even have a GIA certified employee on site! The few times I've been stuck, I've pawned a few pieces and the employees are all really helpful and nice. They do a good job trying to change the image of this business and I highly recommend them.

Had Dave used the correct method in trying to regain his property, instead of spouting obsceneties at the employees in front of other customers and flat out STEALING from the store, maybe the staff would have been less grouchy and more inclined to look you in the face.

There's a reason the police are involved so much in the pawnshop business, and it's because of examples like your's. Any information that can be used for identification is taken down at the time an item enters a transaction. This information is then sent to the local authorities, who keep it on file in the event an item is reported stolen and the owner actually knows to contact them (the police).

The fact you are "flabergasted" at having to prove the item was your's is ridiculous. You can't just walk into BestBuy, claim that flat panel television is your's, and just walk out of the store with it. There are steps you have to take, and they require getting the authorities invloved. Plenty of people get their items recovered from pawnshops this way, and are often very thankful; had their items been sold in another manner, the chances of ever seeing it again are slim and none.

In regards to Roland's comment, the staff has since been changed, there are two new employees that actually give a damn about the store's appearance.

Basically this place is a depository of stolen goods servicing the local criminal element and drug addicts on there way down the ladder of success...run by a bunch of grouchy creeps who won't look you in the eye and an owner who never shows his face. It is a real blight on an otherwise lovely neighborhood.And it is all run above board with the blessing of the Ventura Police...i personally reported a theft after finding my property in this store..only to be informed the burden of proof rests on me "and" i have to pay the amount shown for sale to regain "my" property..i was flabergasted!...Doing business with lovely people like this only supports local crime. Don't do it....

I have bought several air impact & power tools from this business.They were marked on the high side so I let my wife bargin with them.Their jewelry is very high priced and not easy to bargin with them.The store is fair sized , not as clean as it could be, the employees aren't very friendly.
