About us text...
Established in 1992 – Common Exchange worked hard to become the first name in Pawn Brokers across British Columbia Canada. We pride ourselves on having courteous and professional staff, as well as attractive and upscale locations.
Common Exchange is a specialty financial institution that provides British Columbians with small collateral loans, commonly known as pawn loans. Founded in 1993, Common Exchange has grown from a single Surrey location into the most well-known pawnbroker in the Lower Mainland.
We were the first pawnbroker in British Columbia to establish a large network of locations. From the outset, our goal was to provide a standardized service in the same way restaurant chains, clothing retailers, and many in the coffee business had successfully done in the past. As a result, customers can visit any one of our eight locations and expect to receive the same high quality service; the same loan values for the pledged items of collateral; and the same safe, brightly lit and inviting stores. Indeed the Common Exchange’s familiar yellow, red and black logo has come to symbolize the most reliable source of convenient short-term loans through BC.
