For many years, Bear’s Trading Post has reliably served Winchester and the surrounding areas with small loans and quality merchandise. Under new ownership since December 1, 1999, they are located in Winchester on Berryville Avenue, phone (540)667-2925, and are known to many of their customers as a jewelry store, an electronics store, a firearms dealer, a finance company and a music store, to name just a few.
Bear’s Trading Post is one of the 7,000 pawnshops across the country whose traditions go all the way back to antiquity. Christopher Columbus was an early recipient of a pawnshop loan--the Queen of Spain is said to have pawned her jewels to finance his expedition. Bear’s Trading post can be depended on for small loans to help ease today’s economic burdens. When most people first visit this shop, they expect to see the stereo-typically grim pawnshop. You should see their eyes light up when they step into a clean, bright business with cases of fine quality merchandise. In their large jewelry selection, you’ll find diamond and other precious stone rings, gold earrings, bracelets, necklaces and watches, silver and much more. Sporting goods, firearms, tools, musical instruments and electronics are other specialties here.
Remember, when you need a quick loan or a bargain on fine jewelry or other quality products, Bear’s Trading Post is the best place to shop. “As printed in the business section of The Winchester Star® May 2000”
