Welcome to Pawnbroking Consultant Norman Gornbein
Pawnbroking Consultant

I’m happy to announce the release of the new Second Edition of my book, How to Open a Successful Pawnshop, authored by me, Norman Gornbein. It is available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, the Book Depository, and dozens of other online bookstores! There is no other pawnshop book that can match it. If you seriously want to open a successful pawnshop, this is the book for you!

One of the successful pawnshops that I recently opened for a client in Detroit was purchased for a major television show. I am very proud of the fact that what I set up was good enough for Les Gold and his great show, Hardcore Pawn, which is on TruTv.

Do you want to start making big money? Really big recession-proof money? Then open up an upscale pawnshop!

Let me teach you from start to finish with my 30 years of proven experience. I can teach you hands on experience from testing gold for purity (10kt, 14kt, 18kt), grading diamonds, analyzing assorted fine watches (Rolex), and pricing estate jewelry.

With my help, you can detect fakes within seconds. From computer systems to one-on-one customer assistance, I will show you everything you need to know to be profitable.

I started off as a teenager,working in the family jewelry and pawn business. While working for the family’s business I became an expert in diamonds and gems, a master jeweler, and an authority on fine watches.

I opened my own business selling jewelry, custom work for Saks Fifth Ave, Lord-Taylor, Bloomingdales, JC-Pennys, Sears, Target, Montgomery Wards and other major dept stores. Then, in 1992, I opened up a pawn shop called “NORMANS JEWELRY & LOAN” in Southfield, Michigan (one mile outside of Detroit).

When I opened up NORMANS JEWELRY & LOAN, there were only 2 employees. By 2007, it grew to 15 full time employees, with millions of dollars of sales each year and with over 2 million dollars of loans per year.

At the age of 50, I sold my business and semi-retired. With my help, and my 30 years of experience you too will be successful. Please take a look at the other pages of my website—you’ll find many gems about pawnbroking, and might even see a path to wealth for yourself—and with no initial inventory expense!

My goal is to show others how to succeed, as I did.
