About us


Gene's Jewelry & Pawn was started over 29 years ago as a small pawn store on Rivers Ave. Several years after it opened, ownership changed hands to another local Charleston family that still owns it today. Gene's has replaced its original building and expanded to 2 more locations over the years. Treating customers like family and valuing our staff has allowed Gene's to grow and thrive in the lowcountry. We are always working to have the best trained staff and for ways to make our customers lives easier. Thank you Lowcountry!

We are committed to serving our customers with the loans they need and extending them great deals on merchandise they want.

Gene’s can make loans from $5 to $15,000 in minutes.

We need no application or credit check. Our loans are confidential and all of our staff are bonded. Our stores have full surveillance and multi-layered security systems along with all items being insured. Gene’s makes it easy to repay your loans.
