We are the pawn store that wants to be associated with a man named Nicholas. Who is this Nicholas and what does he have to do with a pawn store in Chehalis, WA? As it turns out Nicholas is a very famous individual.
During his time period a dowry was expected to be paid by a young lady's father or she stood little chance of being married. In fact, an unmarried woman was most likely to become a slave. Needless to say, this was a very worrisome situation for a man of modest means with three daughters who lived in Nicholas's community. The distraught father, who was known to Nicholas, went to sleep one evening deeply concerned about his daughters' plight. Miraculously, when the father woke in the morning to find a bag of gold had been thrown through an open window. To the father's amazement the miracle was repeated on two more nights. Someone in the community had saved the unfortunate father's daughters. This miracle had come from Nicholas who was actually Bishop Nicholas later to become St. Nicholas. It turns out that St. Nicholas is the patron saint of pawnbrokers and known to many in our era as Santa Claus.
Now, Twin Cities Trading Post has no ambitions or illusions of reaching sainthood but we do intend to be of assistance to our community.
Historically, at trading posts folks expect to find excellent values and they will at Twin Cities Trading Post. If it was just a pawn shop we wouldn't have established Twin Cities Trading Post. We're truly very excited about this unique store. Working intelligently and compassionately to leave a positive foot print in our community.
Hopefully – We've gotten you curious at the very least. Twin Cities Trading Post will do some real good here and have fun along the way. My objective is to build a legacy that will make my daughter – my family – our community proud.
