Pawn Stars along with the Gold & Silver Pawn team announced the autograph sessions of the star of the show as well as the experts that will be held this 2013 as filming allows.
Owner of Gold & Silver Pawn and star of Pawn Stars Rick Harrison said, “It took some serious planning and trial runs but we think we now have a system that works to allow more fans to meet us and the experts on the show. That was the one piece missing to a great experience when visiting Gold & Silver Pawn.” Located at 713 South Las Vegas Blvd., the small store is visited with over 4,000 people every day and film taking also takes place starting at 7 a.m. and ends at 5 p.m. every weekday year-round. The busy schedule and space are the challenges that one team at Gold & Silver Pawn have overcome.
Once a day during the week, the autograph sessions will take place at random times depending on the availability of the Pawn Star or expert and when filming allows. Signings begin from Monday through Friday with the following dates: January 7 to February 22, March 11 to April 5, April 22 to May 24, June 3 to 28, September 3 to October 11, November 1 to 22 and December 2 to 20.
“Obviously production of the show comes first and is not always predictable, so we will fit the signings in between those times, which is why we cannot set a firm schedule,” store manager Theo Spyer explains. Fans will have a chance to meet the Pawn Star and take photos while 100% of the purchased merchandise for the star’s signature will go to charity. When an expert is signing, a charitable component will be attached to their session. As weekends are no filming days, Saturday autograph signings will be scheduled at a later time and will depend on the stars and experts availability. It may be scheduled and announced in advance.
The fans have been excited in last month’s trial runs and they are pleased to meet the experts and stars. “We knew we needed to find a way to engage with our fans more completely and I’m glad we found the right opportunity to add it into their experience. I find meeting all the people and making their visit to Gold & Silver Pawn cooler is a great addition to their overall experience at the store. The fans love that we allow them to help us give to charity, too,” Austin “Chumlee” Russell said.
Gold & Silver Pawn is open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. every day and from 9 p.m. to 9 a.m. that serves as the night window. The store is located at the famous Las Vegas Strip in downtown and open year-round. The store is owned by Rick, son Corey and dad Richard, the three generations of Harrison family, and it is the home to the show “Pawn Stars”.
