Remember EZ Pawn?

[VIDEO]Last year they visited a meeting hosted by a subarea of the Chatham Avalon Park Community Council about possibly setting up shot at the former Chatham Pancake House near 87th & Langley. Needless to say they're not coming to that location in the near future after the resistance of area residents.

It seems Chatham may not be the only area they have ran into resistance. In this Chicago Tonight story that aired on January 4th of this year, WBEZ reporter Natalie Moore explores the pawn shop business. Mainly the concerns about - for example - loitering, stolen property, or aesthetics.

While EZ Pawn may not have been successful in getting a presence in the Chatham neighborhood, there is a pawn shop named Chatham Jewelry & Loan located at 645 E 79th St.
