Hi guys! I've worked for Mission for almost 20 years. I was reading some of these reviews. Working for this family as long as I have I can tell you that their heart is in the community. They believe strongly in helping people supplement their incomes by providing a means for anyone to sell their unwanted items. We are working on paving the East parking lot and have just added more parking and all that came at a high price. The upside is that we have given a free spot to the Vietnam Memorial Museum for over 25 years. We allow church's and other non-profits to sell in 4 spaces free of charge. We've helped raise money for organizations and allow missionaries to ask for donations at our exits. Also, we've given away school supplies, hair cuts, brought in organizations such as the Animal Defense League, San Antonio City Public Service, Santa Rosa Immunization Bus, UT Health Science Center Bus and more. We are always working to be better for our community.
I have been coming to this pawn shop on a semi regular basis for a few months, and am always treated well by the staff there. I have a few items in right now that I pay on regularly and there have been a couple of times where I was late and could have lost the item but they worked with me so that I was able to keep the items in pawn without losing them. The store is open a little later which helps and personally I have never had any problems, the guys in the front always treat me with respect and are quick. I hope to be out of the situation soon but would definitely use this business again if I get into another jam and say the same to friends.
The food is good to snack on when you're looking around. The prices are pretty good. very entertaining to do when you got a couple bucks and wanna stay out of the sun =) The reason it does not get 5 stars is because the MUSIC and on Sundays there's one booth with people who do NOT know how to sing and they sing gospel songs for 5 hours!!!! and the dance music on the dance floor is Mexican tejano which i do not like; it looks like a senior center on Sundays; but i don't mind that just the music!
