This business is a terrible place to pawn anything the worst pawn shop ever I wouldent recommend this place to any one they claim to be a family owned bussiness but seems to me they have noooo family values if u have a product that was stolen and brought here forget about geting it back because the owner of this store will keep your jewelry to make money from it and lie to you and say oh well its already been sold to a whole sale company to be melted down for gold they are crooks. Never use this cheap nasty hole in the wall place ! They are the real criminals here !

Soooo not true, My grandfather knows the owner and he has done nothing but helped me by offering to identify any coin i find. He even gave me some free coins for no apparent reason and he doesnt know me that well. He never steals anything!:( He has a cool business card with a 20 dollar bill replica on it.

The owner is a dishonest men. I did business with him and he lied and wasted my time and money. He made untrue accusations regarding my business.He is not a good businessman. He's also an idiot. Even if I did pawn or make purchases from Pawn shops it definately wouldnt be this one.

I've also been in there and have dealt with them. I was in need of money and brought my stuff in to pawn. It was a good experience and nothing "hole in the wall" about it. It's actually pretty high class. The difference between me and Holly is that I actually returned to pay for my items. It's not their fault you can't pay back what you owe. What do you expect them to do after your stuff is due? Wait around for you while they're out money?

It doesn't sound like local business owner really went in there. Sounds more of a disgruntled competitor that's upset that someone else is doing better. He doesn't say what happened or why and he thinks that others will believe him. Not to mention, he can't spell properly and is calling someone and idiot. Boo to you sir, boo to you!!!

I don't pawn - never been in one until I had jewelry stolen from my home but I went looking for it. This is my experience - I can't believe anyone like this exists much less stays in business!

This company’s advertisement states “Not your typical pawn shop”,“Richmond’s premier pawn shop” and “We pay top dollar”– DON’T BELIEVE IT!

The truth is a lot different from their advertisements. They are dishonest, they take advantage of their customers by not even paying them the smallest percentage of what items are worth, they lie and they deal in stolen goods.
Sadly, I had jewelry stolen from my home and within two days I went to The Golden Goat and told them my story. Since I described my one of a kind jewelry to them, they knew they had it and that it was stolen, but oddly enough, the owner told Chesterfield County Police that my jewelry is gone. Does this sound like a reputable business to you?
My advice to anyone needing a pawn shop, don’t use The Golden Goat unless you want to be cheated and lied to. We don’t need businesses like this in our area. There are other pawn shops that you can use. In fact, there is one a few blocks North on Jefferson Davis Highway – maybe that’s the one you should try.

I don't know how I will accomplish it but I plan on working with the Richmond City Police and anyone that has been ripped off by these people to get them out of our area.

Holly,
Your review is absolute horseshit. As far as pawn shops go these guys are the best in the Richmond area. I deal with these folks on a regularbasis and know tem by name. You will not find more honest pawnbrokers than Jake, Chad, Ned and Matt. These guys work hard for customer satisfaction, from giving you the best fair market price for your items to offering their inventory at very competitive prices, in fact if you make multiple purchases they cut you an even better deal. If you had a bad deal from Golden Goat I assure you it's the mindset you went in the door with. You can't pawn yesterdays' junk, broken, with missing parts for enough to make a car payment. Get an education in how the real world works baby.

This is an absolute lie and borderline libel. We have strict standards that we abide by which include holding times. Had we sold this alleged item before that period, we would've got sited. We didn't! Therefore, it didn't happen. I am aware of any legal activity in my stores and not once did your name come up. We work very closely with the Chesterfield and surrounding Police Departments to ensure that nothing like this ever happens. In all honesty, you sound like a competing pawnshop trying to ruin my good name. As for everyone else reading your lies, I welcome you to come see for yourself that we aren't your typical pawnshop. We will greet you with a smile and treat you with respect.

I didnt like the service from this place. The midget that works there was in a very bad mood and seems to be this way each and everytime that I have been there , so I'm guessing this is how he is at all times. If people are spending money here why cant there be some kind of good customer service. Boy, if this is a FAMILY BUSINESS I sure as hell dont wana spend my money with any other family business. These people here suck, they are only nice to you if they know you on a personal note, besides the police... they kiss the police butts when they walk in the place. And that attitude alone lets me know that they are no good and may have alot of UNLAWFUL things going on there. I dont know but something is FISHIE with these Goat People.

I went into the golden goat pawn to get a loan on my laptop and they offered me only $50, when I called to try and get an extension for a couple days the owner flat out told me NO, and that he dont offer extensions alot! So I had to borrow the money to re do my loan to buy time because he was threatening to sell my laptop!!! SMFH
