It looks like the Pawn Stars empire may be expanding a bit more. Rick Harrison is planning a Container Park type dining and retail area adjacent to the Gold & Silver Pawn shop. As long as everything is approved, the plan is to have it open by the end of the year.

Gold & Silver Pawn, the Pawn Stars pawn shop, will be closed August 25-30 for renovations. They have already done a few renovations and expansions due to the success of the show. They have not announced the details of the latest renovations, but it must be extensive if it is going to close the shop for a week.
The guys at Gold & Silver Pawn are taking the next step with all of the fame and publicity from the History Channel’s Pawn Stars show. They already dedicate a large amount of floorspace for Pawn Stars branded merchandise. Now they will be doing autograph sessions. This is still in the formative stages, so there aren’t many specifics other than the sessions will take place once per day, when the filming schedule allows. Currently, the plan is for sessions to take place Monday though Friday on:
January 7 – February 22
March 11 – April 5
April 22 – May 24
June 3 – June 28
September 3 – October 11
November 1 – November 22
December 2 – December 20
Click here for my post on getting to Gold & Silver Pawn via the Deuce Bus. It includes a map, too, in case you need driving or walking directions.
Just a few days after my post about how to get to Gold & Silver Pawn via the bus, OnBoard Sightseeing Tours announced the Pawn Stars Tour.
It is a 4 hour tour with stops at Gold & Silver Pawn, The Toy Shack, Rick’s Restorations and Count’s Kustoms. It is very expensive ($69.99 for adults, $59.99 for kids).
Hopefully the price will come down to something a bit more reasonable soon.
If you have not been to Las Vegas in a while, you might think that this would be really easy since the Deuce used to pass right by the shop. That changed in November of 2010, so now, what would have been a very simple trip to Gold & Silver Pawn or one of the various wedding chapels in the area (like the Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel) requires a little more walking.
Take the Deuce North (towards downtown/ Fremont Street) and take it to the Bonneville Transit Center. Walk East on Garces Ave for 3 blocks. Cross Las Vegas Blvd and immediately turn right. Gold & Silver Pawn should be visible in the middle of the block (East side of Las Vegas Blvd).

If you are trying to get to Gold & Silver Pawn from Downtown/Fremont Street, take the Southbound Deuce to Clark Ave. Gold & Silver Pawn will be 2 blocks ahead on your left. If you miss the Clark Ave. stop, you can get off the bus at the Bonneville Transit Center and use the same walking directions mentioned above.
You can also take the SDX (Strip & Downtown Express bus). The SDX has fewer stops (hence the Express), so if you take it, you need to use the Bonneville Transit Center stop and follow the same walking directions given for the Deuce. For $8, you can buy 24 hour pass that allow you to take the Deuce and SDX. You can also buy your ticket when you board the Deuce bus or via machines at the main bus stops.
