You are not missing anything either. The owner spent way too much money and wanted too much money for everything within the place. He has made a negative name for himself through the community as well.

This was the largest pawn shop in America according to their advertisements. Once South Dakota passed the law limiting the interest that short term loan companies can charge, Dollar Loan Center closed. Profits from DLC supported the other businesses that Chuck Brennen owned. Badlands Pawn...More

I never go into pawn shops. No need, because where I live, pawn shops are junk shops. But my cousin wanted us to check this place out. So it's off to the pawn shop we go. Much bigger than any pawn shop I have seen....More

Advertised as a pawn shop, however very little inventory available. There is a firing range indoors as well as a place to eat. Prices are very high compared to similar business in the area.

Went here on a whim just to look around. It's not your typical pawn shop. They did have some unique items, jewelry, lots of Badlands Pawn merchandise & a shooting range on one side of the building. It's worth a stop to check it out.
