Has Gold and Silver Pawn Shop Closed for good

I would like to know if anyone knows if the Gold and Silver Pawn Shop owned originally by The Old Man has closed for good? I know the Old Man passed away sadly and I also heard a rumour that the shop may have closed permanently? I can't seem to find anything on line so I am hoping someone here onTA knows.

Many thanks and with appreciation!

Their website gives no indication of any kind of closure.

And the site references the death of the “ Old Man”, so presumably it’s current.

Where did you hear it was closed?

I'm sure none of the 'celebrity' staff have done any actual work at the store for a good few years, so the store can carry on without any of them.

The rumour monger has probably got confused with the television show ending, which is more likely.

Doubt very much the shop is closing; we visited in July; did a meet and greet tour through Annie Bananie, shop was busy and a big queue outside, but we skipped the line and went straight in.Think it’s potluck who you get to meet.

The Gold and Silver Pawn Shop is open and they signed a deal with The History Channel to continue production of the TV Show. The "old man" had Parkinson's disease for several years. He was 77 when he passed away. That Pawn Shop is a gold mine and I have know idea how anyone could say it is closing.

Here are a few ways to get on that TV Show as an extra. Show up early, be well dressed, never look at the cameras, act like you are shopping and do what the producers say. The TV show is taped in the early AM, usually starting around 8am. Contact ABC-TV (Disney), History Channel or Hearst Communications if you want to be in the background. If you have something of value to sell or pawn, contact the producers well in advance.
