Unless state or local laws prohibit pawnbrokers from operating on Sundays, pawn shops are allowed to open on Sunday if they choose to do so. For example, pawnbrokers in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, are not allowed to be open on Sundays at certain times in November and December, notes the Louisiana Office of Financial Institutions. By contrast, EZPAWN opens some of its Utah locations for limited hours on Sundays, as of 2015.
Pawns shops provide loans against items that serve as collateral. After loan repayment, the item is reclaimed. If the customer doesn't pay back the loan on time, the item becomes property of the shop.
