About Us

After enduring the hardship of World War II the late Martin Kaminsky came to NYC with a background in watch repair and a helpful hand at providing assistance to those in financial distress. After finding a suitable location he had created Gem Pawnbrokers, in Brooklyn, NY in 1947.

The Beginning

From that time onward, David Kaminsky, Martin’s youngest son watched and learned the tools of the pawn broking trade. He diligently studied his father’s entrepreneurial mannerisms, and older siblings adaptations into the business, graduated from Northeastern University, and then gradually developed a plan to go off on his own. Having built many new stores for his father, and the conducting of operations under his belt, David held all the ingredients necessary to create a successful pawnshop; in 1996 EZ Pawn Corp was formed.

Since that time

David has been able to watch his business cultivate, as his dream to create his own truly became a reality. To this day, EZ Pawn Corp recognizes its original family foundation within the pawn-broking industry, and as David’s children grow and mature they soon will be able to carry on the company name. Lauren, David’s daughter and recent Boston University School of Management graduate is the first to enter the business and is currently Vice President of Marketing and Operations.

Rapid growth

EZ Pawn Corp currently has 13 locations and has proven to be one of the fastest growing pawn-broking chains in New York. The company stands by its unparalled customer service and ensures reliable, and trustworthy transactions for all.

Doing our part

While maintaining its appearance as a financial institution to those in need, EZ Pawn Corp has also proven itself to be a great asset to the communities in which it serves. Yearly corporate responsibility efforts have included the Kiss Cares Coat Drive, New York City AIDS Walk, and many more!
