Here at Murphys Pawn and Loan we are excited to announce our 30th Anniversary! WOW, what a ride it’s been and can’t wait for another 30 years. 

Linda Murphy and Charles Murphy started the business in 1988 as a Feedstore/Pawn Shop. The Pawn Shop over took the feed store so we had to close the feed store and open up in a different location. Our Pawn Shop has been here from day one and we are proud and honored to be a part of the community of Oroville California. We have watched our customers grow up and mature in life. We have watched our customers struggle and then succeed. It is an amazing and humbling to watch the transition with our community. Come on down and join us for some refreshments, to say hello and receive your five dollars Murphy’s Buck. This is the first time that we’ve ever offered the Murphy’s Bucks. We are very excited about it and we hope you will be to. This is our gift to you. Thank You for allowing us to be a part of your community and life.
Can’t wait! Cindy Jo and Linda Murphy will here to greet you and to say Thank You. 

Note: refreshments will be offered until supplies run out. The Murphy’s Buck will be offered to adults.

When you are shopping for jewelry, electronics, or any other retail item, don’t head to the mall head to the pawn shop! Check out Murphy's Pawn & Loan for an excellent selection of high quality items at prices that can’t be beat. Our inventory is constantly changing, but we are confident that you will find what you need when you visit our store.


Pawn shops by California state law must hold items for 4 months and 10 days before putting merchandise out for sale.  At the 10 day peroid a notice i.e LOVE LETTER will be mailed out to the customer to remind them that their item is due and needs to be picked up or renewed. Renewing a loan gives the customer another 4 months and 10 days.  We charge $3.00 per notcie sent and if the pawn ticket is lost we charge $7.00 per ticket.  Most pawn shops charge $10.00 for a lost ticket.  We are here to help our neighbors not hurt them.  

Owner of Murphy's Pawn & Loan

Hello my name is Cindy Jo,
I am the current owner of Murphy's Pawn & Loan.  I am the daughter of Charles and Linda Murphy who established Murphy's in Oroville, CA in 1988.  I am proud of what they started and continue to hold thier work ethic.  However, I have brought a little technogoly to the shop which made my mom uneasy but when the law calls for it that's what I must do.  She liked the old way but is continuing to learn the new programs and systems.
