Little Known Pawn Shop Facts

The following facts are from the History Channel’s “Pawn Stars” website.

* The first pawn shops emerged in ancient China more than 3,000 years ago.                            

* Today, there are more than 12,000 pawn shops operating in the United States alone.

* It is estimated that approximately 25 million Americans do not have a bank checking account. Pawn shops serve this population by offering a    source of short-term loans.

* State laws mandate that customers pawning  items provide detailed information including name, address, and date of birth and show government issued ID. (La Familia even requires fingerprints!)
