Default American Jewelry & Loan-Been there?

Every once in a while my kids and I find ourselves laughing at the pre-planned skits on Hardcore Pawn. I was thinking about taking them there this morning just to see the place. I was wondering if anyone has been there and if they actually have anything interesting in the store other than your usual pawn crap, snow blowers, used tools, outdated electronics, and old bikes. Is it worth the 40 minute drive?

Haven't been there, went to their satellite store in Pontiac and was greatly disappointed. Very small with mostly jewelry and a cheap Chinese strat for about the price of a Mexican strat. Few other odds and ends but typical garbage pawn store crap, reminded me of the pawn shop on 8 mile and van dyke all junk

I stopped in the main store a couple times. Not much interested me, and what did was over priced. It's a pawn shop. Stuff should be cheap, and I don't like to haggle.

Thanks for the advice, we decided against going out there. I'm going hunting instead. I've been getting lots of trail cam pics of a momma and her 2 little ones along with their daddy (used to be a nice 8pt but he lost one side of his antlers so he's a 4pt now). I'm hoping to put one of them in the freezer tonight which will make number 4 for me this year!

My wife's cousin who is big into d&d, renaissance swords and, weapons took a bunch of his swords in there to get on TV I guess he did but I didn't see the episode. Been to Gold and Silver in Las Vegas though and its small and dingy and well rehearsed for the show. Cory is a big guy but Rick is a lot shorter then he looks on TV

I got an email from one of the show's producers a little while back. I had a sweet leather race suit that I had on Craigslist and they said that I should bring it in to try and sell it. They said that they could not promise I would get what I wanted for it, but they encouraged haggling.

Here is the suit:

That pic is awesome! I want one of those little mini-bikes. I know where there is a Heathkit one with the large rear wheel, but I don't think my aunt would let me buy it

Watching that show right now reminded me about this thread. I was at the Pontiac store a couple days ago to sell a ring. They offerd me $225, which I passed on and ended up taking it to Tappers in Great Lakes Crossing...ended up getting $500! I understand they need to make cash, but that's just plain taking advantage of someone.
