Wichita, Kansas – A-OK Enterprises, LLC is pleased to announce that their newest A-OK Super Center, located at New Leaf Plaza on 21st and Amidon, will officially open on Saturday, November 8th, 2014.

Grand Opening festivities are planned from 10am till 3pm on Saturday, November 8th. Making a special appearance at the Grand Opening will be Seth Gold, star of the cable TV show Hardcore Pawn. Seth is a popular and respected figure in the Pawn industry and his presence highlights the importance of this new A-OK Super Center. Attendees to the Grand Opening will have a chance to meet with Seth and get their pictures taken with him from 11am till 1pm.

Other activities planned for the Grand Opening are a Treasure Map hunt, “I Saw Gold” t-shirts, free food from 11a till 1p, and exclusive grand opening offers, including a no interest loan offer. In line with A-OK’s mission of supporting worthy community causes, a portion of the sales from the Grand Opening will be donated to the Kansas Children’s Service League.

Bruce Harris, Founder and CEO of A-OK, is excited about the new A-OK Super Center. “This store is an innovative approach to what a Pawn store looks like and the services that it offers. We’re proud to say this concept originated here in Wichita.” Mr. Harris added, “We think this new Super Center concept will change people’s perceptions of the Pawn business and it will definitely change how they buy and borrow money.”

The new A-OK Super Center at New Leaf Plaza will offer five different consumer services– A-OK Retail, Financial Services, One Day Jewelry, Cricket Phones and Better Living, which is a new lease to own concept.

 

OOPS — Our Spill is Your Deal!

You’ve seen our ecommerce department on TV — normally they’re a Hardcore team! Recently, however, someone spilled coffee on a piece of our Sports Memorabilia. This cool Steve Yzerman Jersey is signed by Doug Brown, Mathieu Dandinault, Dave Lewis, Martin Lapointe, Tomas Holmstrom, and Larry Murphy.

Because it doesn’t meet our quality standards, we cannot sell the jersey as it is. But we can give it away … which is exactly what we’ll do. Be the first person to spend over $100 at our online store and it’s YOURS ($100 or more purchase excludes pawn gear).

First qualifying purchase gets it!
