Pawnshops: 10 Things to Know »
Most people think of pawn stores as a way to make cash quickly or a place to buy an inexpensive ring. In reality, they're a lot more complex than simple buy-and-sell transactions…
After receiving the current ad for GFS, I made a list of products that I wanted to buy. Number 1 on my list was a 10 lb. bag of potatoes for $.99. The add ran from Aug. 19-23. On the first day of the sale, the 19th, there were no more potatoes. They only had a small area on a shelf for these potatoes. As a clerk responded, "When they were gone that was it." No rainchecks, no shipment coming in...sold out of a small shelf area of the potatoes on the first sale day. That is luring people in under false pretenses. I will not be trying to shop for bargains at GFS again.
