Albuquerque, New Mexico is home to Roosevelt Park. This historic park is a designated Albuquerque Historic Landmark and is listed on both the National Register of Historic Places and the State Register of Cultural Properties for New Mexico. A sandy arroyo filled with trash was transformed into a rolling, green environment planted with more than 2,000 trees and plants between 1933 and 1935 by manual laborers hired by President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s New Deal programs. It has long been a favorite gathering and entertainment spot in the city. 

University Pawn

The recurrent business of their loyal customers is what keeps everyone at the University Pawn flourishing. A regular clientele is their target audience, and they want to develop and maintain close bonds with them. They operate an established pawn store in Silver Hill, Albuquerque neighborhood. Since the owner, Scott, has worked at a number of local pawn shops over the past ten years, there’s a good possibility you’ll come in and recognize someone if you’re familiar with the pawn industry in the Albuquerque region.

One Google reviewer, Ryan M., shared;

“I’ve never been a customer of University Pawn but Jack recovered some very specialized equipment for me that was stolen earlier in the month. He went above and beyond to help me out and demonstrated a ton of character in recovering and returning my belongings. He runs the business with an extraordinary level of integrity and for that, I recommend University Pawn to everyone.”
