American Jewelery & Loan Reviews & Ratings
I brought in a guitar but they refused to give me anything for it simply because it wasn't a name brand of their liking. I told them it still works and they could sell it, and they then had their security guard physically assault me. I wasn't laying my hands on anyone nor did I have intent to. I was just a man conducting business.
Went on a family vacation to Michigan from Oregon on the way back to the airport my kids wanted to stop in. I am so glad we stopped Les and Seth are awesome!! The whole staff was so nice to us and they took pictures with us, I was reading the reviews and they said the people where rude, that is not true the whole staff was great to my family and I. If you are in the area I would stop in cause if you don’t you will be sorry it was way better then Pawn Stars!!!
Such an excellent experience! Just came in to look around and ended up buying a gorgeous watch for my husband, necklaces for my daughter and sister and a beautiful diamond ring a bracelet for myself! Thank you for the patience and kindness in helping me buy all my beautiful gifts!
I called over the phone woman was super nice and gave me a good estimate
Watched the show and took a ride to Detroit les and Seth are good people. We could not do deals with um lol they forwarded us to their workers and we got to meet the big body guard in the show as well
