Capel Pawnbrokers History
108 Capel Street is the oldest pawnbrokers in Ireland. There has been a pawnbrokers on the site since the 1850s. The Brereton family took over the existing business in 1916 and four generations later we are still running it.
In 2015, in honour of our upcoming centenary celebration, the family has decided to rebrand the pawnbrokers in honour of the street that has become synonymous with pawnbroking in Ireland. Our new name is Capel Pawnbrokers.
The business still remains with the Brereton family and is now part of the growing number of businesses managed by the family under the parent brand The Brereton Group.
We are excited about these new developments and look forward to further growth in the future.
Thank you for your ongoing business and support.
