Long before banks, ATMS and check-cashing services, there were pawn shops. Pawning was the leading form of consumer credit in the United States until the 1950s, and pawn shops are still helping everyday people make ends meet. Pawn Stars takes you inside the colorful world of the pawn business. "Pawn Stars" follows the Harrison family as they assess the value of items coming in and out of their Gold & Silver Pawn Shop in Las Vegas, from the obscure to the truly historic.
HISTORY's hit series, PAWN STARS, brings viewers inside the doors of a family-run pawnshop in Las Vegas, where three generations of men from the Harrison family: grandfather Richard, son Rick and grandson Corey jointly run the business, with clashing and camaraderie every step of the way. This family lives and breathes the pawning business, using their sharp-eyed skills to carefully assess the value of items their colorful customers bring in, objects ranging from the obscure to the truly historic.
