Rick Harrison and his family own and run a pawn shop on the Las Vegas strip. They buy, sell, and appraise items of historical value.
Did You Know?
Rick said in his autobiography that the reason viewers at home see more sales than pawns on the show is because most of the people who pawn things at their shop don't want to be seen on TV. See more
The pawn shop is always jam-packed during the "stock footage' of the shop shown between segments, yet is mysteriously empty during most transactions that take place there on the show. This is because the shop closes and vacates its customers during most filmed transactions. See more

Himself - 'The Spotter'
At my shop, family comes first, and money comes second, depending on who ya ask. But the best part: You never know what's gonna come through that door. This is "Pawn Stars."
Early episodes "play it straight" in the "this time on Pawn Stars" segments at the beginning of the show, showing what will be sold/traded/etc. on the show. However, in more recent seasons, this has become more of a "joke" segment, and features outtakes or funny scenes that aren't in the actual respective segments (cars not starting, comical dialogue, things going wrong, etc.) See more
