Why did the A-OK Pawn Shop at Central and Ridge close?

The A-OK Pawn Shop near Central and Ridge has closed.

Owner Bruce Harris says it’s in part because he has “too many stores … too close together.”

He has a 12,000-square-foot A-OK Super Center at 410 N. West St. and a 34,000-square-foot one at New Leaf Plaza at 21st and Amidon.

The Central and Ridge A-OK had been in its building for 17 years and needed to be remodeled. Harris says he decided to consolidate resources instead.

There’s a contract pending for someone else to buy the building.
