Shane Porter started his pawnbroking career in 1992 in Tulsa OK. for a large publicly owned chain. In 1995, he and his wife Debbie opened Porter’s Pawn & Bargain Center, Inc in Mountain Home. That store has grown to an 8000 square foot large operation with a full time jeweler and a dozen employees. In 2012, the Porter’s opened another store in Harrison, Arkansas. That store, also an 8000 square foot store, is a replica to their home store in Mountain Home. Both stores are clean, departmentalized, modern looking stores and are staffed by highly trained customer-service specialists who strive to meet or exceed the customers needs on each and every deal.
