Bay Area Pawn Shop & Retail Chain Acquires Two New Locations
Bay Area based Best Collateral announced the grand opening of two new store locations in Santa Rosa and San Jose, CA. The pawn shop and retail shopping chain is excited about the expansion and continues to experience increased market share in the competitive Bay Area pawn industry. “The continued growth is a testament to Best Collateral’s constant pursuit of excellence in every facet of the pawn industry,” said Robert Verhoeff, president of Best Collateral.
With ten locations in the Bay Area and Northern California, the company’s roots can be traced all the way back to 1903 in downtown San Francisco. More recently, however, Best Collateral is reinventing the pawning experience by creating a cutting-edge, retail experience where customers shop for affordable merchandise or secure a pawn loan.
Widely recognized for providing alternative financial resources to consumers from all walks of life, Best Collateral has also earned a reputation as one of the North Bay Area’s leading employers. The company has been selected by North Bay Business Journal as one of the Best Places To Work for the past three years, consecutively.
“In a culture of high expectations, we pride ourselves on providing an environment where the staff is encouraged to reach for their highest potential,” noted Robert Verhoeff. “We also have a culture where learning everyday is not just a buzzword – but something to be nurtured and celebrated.”
The company expansion signals a new phase in Best Collateral’s growth as a leading financial lending institution seeking to meet the financial needs of the bay area’s cash-conscious consumers. “We look forward to providing financial aid to community residents for decades to come, while maintaining respect and dignity for those struggling or out of work,” added Mr. Verhoeff.
