Pawnbrokers Report Increase in Retail Sales but Eye Online Competition
The NPA announced today the results of the NPA 2017 Trend Survey. The survey, which was conducted in early 2018, focuses on industry trends as reported by pawnbroker members of the NPA for the 2017 calendar year. The NPA has compiled survey results since 2013 to explore long range trends and their implications.
