About the Owners

Dan and CourtneyMy name is Dan Crouse and my wife Courtney and I are the owners of Plaza, Valley and Thunder Pawn. I am a second generation pawnbroker and was taught the business by my father. My father was a self made pawnbroker who ran his stores a little differently than most other shops. He ran upscale pawnshops that were well merchandised, clean and run by frienldy people. He found that his customers appreciated his approach and some of my first memories are from being in his store. I tell people I was a Pawnstar before it was cool.

I met my wife Courtney about 15 years ago and she got involved in the business shorty after. Before long she was working in the stores full time and brought her own ideas and expertise into the business. Together we have made three stores we are very proud of. We offer well designed, clean, bright showrooms full of modern well checked merchandise. All customers are greeted with a smile and treated with respect.

Pawn shops are great because you can find everything from a 1969 Gibson guitar to a 2009 Harley Davidson. Our inventory is always changing, but there is always something for everyone, and always at a fair price. We strive to be the best. That means loaning more and paying more than our competition. We will beat any competitors price on ANYTHING, guaranteed. We have been a family owned business for over 20 years and have loyal customers that have been with us from the beginning. Stop in and check us out and maybe you will be with us for the next 20.
