Serving Pell City Since 1992

DSLR Camera, iPad, and Jewelry

Pell City Gold & Pawn was established in 1992 under the original owner Mr. Donnie Hammett and was located on Cogswell Ave. in Pell City Alabama. Pell City Gold & Pawn grew to become a local icon with a reputation for outstanding customer service, and a desire to help their customers overcome any financial difficulties.

Over the years as the Pawn Shop grew, so came the need to move to a more modern location capable of providing the highest quality services and merchandise selection to an expanding customer base. In 2012, the business moved to its current location on Highway 231, across the street from Sonic Drive In.

In the Spring of 2020, the shop was purchased by new owners, Nathan Smith & Christopher Philbrick. The new owners realized the close relationships Mr. Hammett had made with the community over his 28-year career, and have committed themselves to continue the outstanding level of service that the community has come to expect.

When customers visit the store today, they will find a modern, professional pawn shop offering a full range of high-quality services, convenience options, and a caring staff who are committed to helping them reach their financial goals.
