Our history: 

Mr. Carter started in the pawn shop business in 1981 by founding Bill's Pawn Shop in Hopkinsville, KY.   He sold that shop in 1989, then founded Echo Pawn Inc. in 1991.  As of this date, Echo Pawn Inc. is the largest pawn shop in Western Kentucky. 

Some of the innovative ideas implemented were:

- First pawn shop with a drive-up window
- First pawn shop to operate out of a strip-mall shopping center
- First pawn shop to use computerized pawn brokering

Echo Pawn Inc. has helped to change the way Americans think about pawn shops.  It is a unique company and a trendsetter in an age-old industry.  We are setting our goals high and welcome you through our sales and service.
In recent years, we have branched out into online sales, beginning with eBay auctions in 2004.  We now have a strong sales record on eBay and are continuously striving to improve.  Two years ago we began utilizing Craig's List to reach a larger regional customer base and drive our brick and mortar sales.  We now have a Facebook page where we offer great deals and post photos of our latest merchandise. 

 He who has a thing to sell,
And goes and whispers in a well,
Is not so apt to get the dollars,
As he who climbs a tree and hollers.
