CN Cash For Gold and ACE Cash Express add more Wichita sites

WICHITA — Need some money? Cash-strapped Wichitans have two new options with more to possibly follow.

A second CN Cash For Gold is now here. The first is near 21st and Ridge.

The second opened this week next to Jimmy's Egg at Harry and Rock.

"There's a real high demand for it," says managing member Nick Nguyen.

Part of the demand is due to the high price of gold and silver, he says.

"That's real good for our business."

A struggling economy helps as well.

"In a way," Nguyen says, "we're helping people out."

There are a couple more of the stores in the greater Kansas City area with more to follow there and possibly here.

Don Piros of Landmark Commercial Real Estate handled the deal at Harry and Rock.

There's also a new ACE Cash Express opening in the former Papa John's Pizza space near 21st and Amidon.

The store, which is the company's 10th in Wichita, will open later this month.
