GCPAWN opens store #9 in Central Florida
GC Pawn announces the grand opening of their 8th pawn location in Lakeland. This marks their first store in central Florida which can be visited at 1555 S Combee Rd just south of Crystal Lake Drive. The company can be found in the corner unit and is now the anchor tenant of Crystal Lake Plaza.
The company was founded in 2008 when their first location opened in Pompano Beach. Owners Josh and Adam Davis hail from a multi generational pawnbroking family. Their grandfather, Martin, started his first pawn store in 1947 after returning from the war where he served as a watch maker. Their parents, aunts, uncles and cousins are in the pawn business as well with stores located in the NYC area operating under the names EZ Pawn Corp NYC and Gem Pawnbrokers.
The Davis brothers are looking towards a bright future in the Central Florida region where their stores will be female led by a longstanding employee named Betty. She has been with the company since their 1st year in business. A native of Central Florida, Betty is happy to return home where she will be providing the same excellent service to the Lakeland community as she has in South Florida over the past 10 years.
