The application shall include the address of the places where the business is to be conducted, the hours and days of the week during which the applicant proposes to engage in the business of pawnbroking or dealing in precious metals at each such place, and such other information as may be necessary to determine the applicant's qualifications for a license in accordance with the provisions of this act.
