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?
When the show came on the air, customer traffic to the pawn shop boomed. As a result, the store was not only forced to hire tons of new employees, but also to make customers to stand in a line outside the store so as to prevent overcrowding. See more
Episodes/segments of episodes/etc. are clearly filmed out of order. A good example of this is the seller with the Las Vegas Club poker chip getting the Rat Pack statues - yet these statues can be seen on display in the background in later episodes. Likewise, on a more recent episode, the green Jim Morrison painting by Denny Dent is alternately present/not present between segments, with a different painting being there when it is gone. 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."
Seasons from 2009-2013 feature the "original" intro sequence, which shows members of the Harrison family around the shop, showing off and handling a number of items the shop carries (including Confederate money.) This intro is noteworthy in that it does not at all feature Chumlee (as it is unlikely the crew knew how popular he would become at the time.) Starting mid 2013, a new intro sequence began airing, with an instrumental by Lynyrd Skynyrd serving as the theme music. It features the 4 main cast members (including Chumlee) walking down a Vegas street together, and ends with them standing on the Pawn Shop roof. See more
