LAS VEGAS (AP) — The co-owner of the Las Vegas shop featured in the reality show "Pawn Stars" hopes a shopping center he's proposing will lure the long lines of tourists who visit his famous store.
The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports that Rick Harrison is drawing up plans for a Pawn Star Plaza that could boast six restaurants and about 16 small shops.
The plaza would consist of several modular units fit together like a Rubik's Cube. Harrison says he was inspired by the nearby Container Park that's built out of shipping containers commonly found on trains and barges.
Harrison's Gold & Silver Pawn Shop is in a gritty area near bail-bond offices and a now-closed tattoo parlor. He says he wants to help the area without using city redevelopment funds.©2014 Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten, or redistributed.
