The local pawn shop industry is one that isn’t being hurt by the current recession. Clint Gober, manager of Mountain Man Supplies and Pawn on South School where the average pawn is $64, said he’s seeing more people bringing their belongings through the door and saying they need extra cash to fill their gas tanks or buy food for their children. “We’re not dealing with people that need home loans or vehicle loans or anything like that. These are people that just need some money to get by until their paychecks come in,” he said.
