Welcome to Chicago's most outrageous family-owned pawn shop. Run by brothers Randy and Wayne, the odd couple is constantly at war with one another, their kids and their customers. Brimming with cash, gold, conflict and the most unusual objects ever seen, this is a family business where the tempers run high, but the money can pile higher.
With 50,000 sq. ft. of cash and goods surrounding them, there are millions to be made, but their profits come with huge risk. Welcome to the world of Hardcore Pawn.
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.
