The name “Ed and Moe’s” dates back to the early 1930’s Seattle waterfront Pawn Shop that specialized supporting the laboring community by pawning, of all things, clothes. The family members of the historical Seattle pawn shop were consulted and confirmed that they would allow the name to continue on in an industry that provided financial assistance to those who were in need.
In 2008, Ed and Moe’s Pawn Shop Kennewick was purchased independently and relocated from its 600 sq. ft. facility on Kennewick Avenue to it’s current and permanent 3300 sq. ft. store front and warehouse at 419 W. Entiat Avenue in the Historical Downtown Kennewick District. The move also came with a slight name change to “Ed and Moe’s Pawn Shop & Guitar Bar”, emphasizing the amazing inventory of musical equipment including, but not limited to, quality guitars at affordable prices for all players and styles!!
While clothes are no longer the emphasis of loaning (but occasionally find their way into our inventory), we definitely understand the value of diversity and will look to pawn virtually any item in order to provide assistance to those in need. Ed and Moe’s Pawn Shop & Guitar Bar typically provides pawns for Gold, Silver, Platinum, Coins, Jewelry, Home Electronics and TV’s, Laptops, Car Audio Equipment, Wheels and Tires, Trade Tools, Musical Instruments of ALL types, Amplifiers, PA Gear, and many other items that can be used as security.
