Case Study

New Bond St Pawnbrokers


David Sonnenthal/ New Bond Street Pawnbrokers


Consumer PR campaign


David Sonnenthal owns and runs New Bond Street Pawnbrokers. The business is a well- established and highly regarded company, situated in London’s West End.
David appeared as a dealer in Channel 4 show ‘4 Rooms’.

David hired us to reposition his brand and launch a new website to coincide with the TX

Justin and the Boom team went above and beyond my expectations. Great communications from everyone involved, worked with me to build a tailor made campaign round myself and company NBSP. Took the effort to really understand the markets myself and company trade in. Effective, direct, positive attitude and ‘out of the box thinking’ would highly recommend Justin and the Boom team to anyone looking for some quality PR. Will for sure be working with Boom again soon
