Rick Harrison Businessman
Harrison’s father opened his first 300-square-foot secondhand store in 1981, the Gold & Silver Coin Shop, which spread on Las Vegas Boulevard South. He used to operate for his father in the shop during the daytime while repossessing cars at night. After five years the store was repositioned to a larger area on Fremont Street. Behind two years at that location, the Harrisons forfeited their lease.
They thereafter moved into a new building in a commercial neighborhood on Las Vegas Boulevard. He defines in his autobiography that he and his father had long sought to convert the store into a pawn shop, naming it a logical progression.
Because of a 1955 Las Vegas law directing the issuing of new means licenses to be modified on the basis of the city’s population, which by 1988 was over 200,000 and rapidly developing, he called the city statistician every week, so that they could devote for a periodic and much-coveted means license as soon as the city’s population reached By 1989 the city’s population matched that number and after some legal battles, the Harrisons got their pawn license.
That year he and his father extended the Gold & Silver Pawn Shop less than two miles from the Las Vegas Strip. By 2005, he and his father were lending out about $3 million yearly, which acquired them about $700,000 in interest income.
By 2006, the shop had developed a prominence for carrying special sports items with distinctive histories, including a 2001 New England Patriots Super Bowl ring that was owned by American football cornerback Brock Williams.
It was as well-served bettors who, according to Harrison’s son Corey, frequently came in to pawn something so they have gas to get back home. According to Harrison in 2010, the things most frequently brought into the store are jewelry. Since the beginning of Pawn Stars, Harrison’s stock generally had a ratio of 5,000 items pawned per 12,000.
