Goldman's Pawn Shop

Richard Meredith had a great admiration for Jack Goldman whose grandfather established the family retail and pawn business in Evansville, Indiana, in 1899. Richard is a local musician who would bring his personal items to the pawn shop when times got hard as a truck driver. The Goldmans had reasonable rates and always went the extra mile to ensure if you wanted your pawned musical instrument back, you could get it back. During the Goldman's Pawn Shop's 125 anniversary party, Richard pulled out a guitar to join the jam session that included store employees and renowned musician Andy Timmons.
