Meet Us

Michael (Owner)

Welcome to my store. I pretend to run things around here but I am not sure the rest of the gang would vouch for that. Top Dollar Pawn & Jewelry was started by my father over thirty years ago. I worked here during my summer vacations throughout high school and college. I then moved to the Big Apple, New York City, where I helped to start a company by the name of Syrup Inc. I operated as their CTO until I moved back down to Washington, DC so that my father could start to enjoy his retirement. I feel like I have adopted a new family working here and that family continues to grow as I meet and help new people every day. We just recently opened our second location in Charles county off of Crain Hwy. Don’t fear Prince George’s County we have not forgotten where are roots, we have remodeled our original location. Come in and say hi, i’d love to spend some time talking with you.
