H&T is proud to be one of the industry leaders in modern pawnbroking, a lending principle that dates back hundreds of years, allowing people to borrow money based on the value of their assets.
The company has come a long way from its humble beginnings in 1897 when Walter Harvey and Charles James Thompson first registered the Ltd. business and opened its inaugural store in Vauxhall, London. The initial store was so successful, that just five years later, they had another two stores on the famous Lambeth Walk.
Overcoming obstacles, such as the Bermondsey store fire in 1906, the business still stood strong and by 1915 had a total of 19 stores. Today, that total stands at an impressive 259 stores serving customers all across the UK.
In its 125 th year in business, H&T has expanded even further, with three new stores opening soon in Wales, set to provide even more people with the experience and expertise all its staff have to offer.
A people-centric company
H&T Pawnbrokers has people at the heart of everything it does, with employees and customers at the core of the business. The company currently employs more than 1400 colleagues at 259 stores and three support centres.
The high street presence in communities across the UK is an important part of maintaining the trust that H&T has built over the years, and it aims to continue evolving the business to best fit the needs of a modern, changing lifestyle.
The business has modern pawnbroking at its core, but also offers a host of other services, like travel money, gold purchase and cheque cashing.
