The Ponders Crew

 Since 1961, Ponders Pawnbrokers Inc., your local Pawn Shop in Lakewood, has provided fast and confidential loans and excellent customer service. We believe in the importance of forming long-lasting relationships with our clients and will do what’s necessary to keep you coming back. 


 We’re confident in the prices we offer you for your loans; in fact, 95% of our patrons return to Ponders after investigating the prices other pawn shops will offer. We buy, sell and lend. Experience the Ponders Pawnbrokers difference!


We have been a member of the Washington State Pawnbrokers Association since 1974. We are family-owned and -operated and have an underlying commitment to the region; that’s why we are active in community groups like the Puyallup Food Bank, which serves as the distribution center for 28 other food banks. Some establishments promise a better experience – we deliver it.
