TLC is premiering an all-new series PAWN QUEENS, tonight, May 5 at 10/9c. The original premiere special episode achieved an average number of 1.2 million P2+ viewers.
Located right outside Chicago, businesswomen Minda and Nikki run the only pawn shop that caters to women. This family-friendly boutique specializes in merchandise that caters to real women, including must-haves like jewelry, vintage Barbie dolls, and one-of-a-kind antiques. Each episode reveals what’s involved in the pawning business and features Minda and Nikki struggling to debunk the stereotype that the pawn business is just a man’s world. With their two business partners, Greg and Tom, they pawn, purchase and sell anything in order to help their fledgling company stay afloat. Each item that comes through their doors is an opportunity to win big or lose big.
Here is a sneak peek clip from tonight’s show.
“Pawn Shop for Women”
Minda and Nikki are proud of their female-friendly pawn shop. When one customer brings an “I Love Lucy” doll to the shop, the ladies know it’s special.
My husband and I actually watched the original premiere special episodes (I believe there were two) that aired a short time back and enjoyed them. We seem to be drawn to these type of shows and also include Hard Core Pawn on truTV and Pawn Stars on the History channel for our viewing pleasure. We will be watching tonight. Will you?
