What is a Buy/Sell/Trade store?
Just like it sounds! Merchandise is purchased from customers for cash or for trade toward items in the store, which functions as a normal retail outlet offering new and used items for sale.

Where is MONSTER PAWN/MONSTER DEALS3 located?
Our Springfield location is located roughly 3 hours south of Chicago and 1-1/2 hours north of St. Louis in Springfield, Illinois. See the STORE INFO & MAP page addess, hours, contact info and map.

Do you sell online? Where do you ship?
We do not ship or sell directly online from this webiste, although we do ship all over the United States from our eBay store, MONSTER-DEALS3.

What methods of payment do you accept?
In the store we accept VISA, Mastercard, Discover, American Express or cash. NO PERSONAL CHECKS. For eBay purchases you can pay with PayPal or a Postal Money Order, or any of the other methods if you are picking up your item.

What do you buy/sell?
We're willing to buy or sell just about anything, within reason! We do not buy or sell guns (except air and paint guns), and we try to avoid dealing in souls. Otherwise, let us know what you have/need and we'll give it every consideration.

Who owns Monster Pawn?
Monster Pawn Bloomington, the original location, was opened and is owned by Edwin and Kathy Pierce. The Normal location is co-owned in partnership with Tommy O'Donnell, and the Springfield location is co-owned in partnership with Steve Mileham. Monster Pawn Springfield is managed by Jay Etherton.

Who is that bald guy in the TV commercials?
That bald guy is Ed Pierce, owner of the entire Monster Pawn and Monster Deals dynasty - the head honcho, the big cheese. He can currently be found at the Springfield location each week on Tuesdays, the Normal location on Thursdays, and the Bloomington location most other days. By the way, he shaves that thing every day.
