There is no Chumlee and the Old Man isn't hanging around behind the counter, but Norwalk has its first pawn shop.

Cashland Financial Services at 214 Milan Ave., Suite A, held a grand opening Friday.

"Basically, you bring in your items," said store manager Christina Gabriel, a 1999 graduate of Monroeville High School. "We look it up, see if it works and try to make a deal."

Gabriel said you can either sell the item outright, or pawn it. If you pawn it, you have 30 days to return and buy it back. The cost is 5 percent plus a 4 percent service charge.
