Historic Holiday Shopping

Friday, December 4, 2015 | 12:05 am

We all know that Pasadena is full of history but many people don’t realize that the history extends from the architecturally notable buildings to the people and businesses inside them.

Crown City Loan and Jewelry has been a staple of Old Pasadena for 62 years. “We loan money to people when they are in need of quick cash. We support local businesses when they need change and people when they need quarters for parking meters. We’re kind of like the Old Pasadena Bank,” said Todd Robinson, owner of Crown City Loan and Jewelry.

Over the years, he has seen many types of customers and shoppers. “It is ever changing. You just never know… basically anybody can be a potential customer of mine whether they make a million dollars a year or whether they make $20,000 a year. Not only for loans but for purchases,” he added.

This season, Crown City Loan and Jewelry is welcoming all customers with a 40% off sale through January first. Although their stock is constantly rotating Robinson adds that musical instruments and jewelry are especially popular this time of year. He adds that the shop is an excellent choice for bargain hunters and people looking to find unique gifts.

In addition to holiday gifts, Crown City Loan and Jewelry sells Rose Bowl and Tournament of Roses souvenirs in-store. Take a little piece of history with you and remember 2015 fondly.

Crown City Loan and Jewelry is located at 65 East Colorado Boulevard, Pasadena. Call (626) 793-5404 or visit crowncityloan.com for more information.
