I don't know what I'd do without you guys at Carver reed!! They have helpe me through some of the most difficult times in my life, and my family too. I remember being a child and coming in with my mom when she needed some extra money to put food on the table. They are always so nice in there and make you feel better no matter what you are going through. I Trust them with my most precious and valuable family heirlooms and they have never let me down. Thank you and god bless

These people are a lifesaver!! I live just outside Ocean City, NJ and my home sustained serious damage during hurricane sandy last week. My insurance co told me they wouldn't cover it and this year has been very tough financially i didnt know what i was going to do. I scraped together what jewelry I had and brought it to carver reed after reading their reviews and they seriously saved my son and I from having to live in a shelter indefinitely. They were so nice and understanding about my situation and made me feel so much better when i'd been crying for days. The owner even raised his original offer substantially to help me get the amount i needed to begin the repairs on my home. YOU ARE A GOD SEND!! Thank you!!

I was poorly treated here because I would not tell them exactly what I wanted to spend. They are very rude and will not help you unless you have cash falling out of your purse. DO NOT GO HERE

I love Carver W Reed & Co -- they have the finest jewelry, the most knowledgeable clerks and the best prices -- I know people who go there to shop and to borrow money --- they provide services where banks cannot compete. Very professional and safe place to shop right in downtown Philly.

Highly recommended- great way for extra money in this economy. Best part is that you get the money and have time to pay it back and still get your jewelry back. Better then going to a bank for a loan if you have some jewelry you can part with for a little bit. I had to pay a gas bill and wasn't getting my paycheck for another week, I went and got a loan and got my jewelry back the following week when I got paid. I've also had pieces that I've left there for 2 years. Great choice.

pleasantly surprised- great way for fast $$

I found this place when I was searching google for pawn shops in Philly and chose it just because I knew of the location. Ended up being a great choice- classy, good service, got good money for my gold & some of my wife's earrings without having to sell it. Highly recommended.

Need cash from a trusted lender? Go here!!!

With the economy being what it is I was looking for a way to get some extra money for my bills until my next paycheck. I had never been in a position like this before and started looking in to possible options. I came across this store through a friend and my initial reaction was that I love my jewelry and there are so many negative things associated with 'pawn shops.' Well let me tell you that not only do I totally agree with the previous post but I am so thankful for listening to my friend. I was reluctant at first but after my first transaction with Carver W. Reed, I will not only be a lifetime customer but I will recommend this place to anyone and everyone! I felt a little embarrassed going in to pawn my jewelry but they treated me with such respect and as a first time client they explained the whole process to me in a way that allowed me to walk away feeling secure and knowing that I would not have to worry about not seeing my jewelry again. They are so professional and the process is so simple and secure. I mean, they have been in business since 1860, clearly they are doing something right! Go here if you need some extra cash. You can get your jewelry back in a day, a month, 6 months. It will help anyone in a tight spot!

Notably good service experience.....like going to a classy bank

I was a little apprehensive walking in but was made at ease within minutes. It seemed every other customer who walked in while I was there knew all of the clerks. There were no radios, guitars, tools....just beautiful jewelry. I can see why they've been around longer than anybody. It's really a classy place.

Bloomingdales of pawnshops

Philly mag calls them the ""Bloomingdales of pawnshops. and that is so true. It's like walking into a bank. You get treated with respect. Everyone is in suits and ties. They only deal in jewelry and are very upscale. Nothing you would expect from a typical pawnshop.
