History of Family Jewelry and Pawn
Family Jewelry and Pawn is a locally owned chain of pawnshops operating five locations in Lake County, Sumter County, and Citrus County, Florida. Mark McNiel and his wife Shawn founded Family Jewelry and Pawn in 2004 when our first location was opened in Minneola, Fl. With the help of our family and friends, over the next decade we grew to a total of 5 shops and employ more than 30 people. We all live in the communities which our locations serve, and we are all about striving to be a good neighbor in our communities.
About the Owners of Family Jewelry and Pawn
Mark has been in the pawn business for over 30 years. Prior to Family Jewelry and Pawn, Mark was with Cash America International, the world’s largest publicly held chain of pawnshops. He was with Cash America for 22 years, where he was the Regional Vice President of Operations for the Southeastern United States with 120 pawnshops in 6 states.
Mark and his wife Shawn McNiel opened these stores with the simple belief that PEOPLE ALWAYS COME FIRST. We feel that all of our employees are our extended family. We work very hard at making sure they have every opportunity to succeed in life and at work. In turn, we make sure we create a culture where our employees are empowered to meet our customers’ needs.
All of us at Family Jewelry and Pawn want to say thank you to all of our loyal customers and to the communities we serve. We are excited about our future and about finding new communities to be a part of as we move forward.
