LAS VEGAS, June 25, 2015 – In anticipation of a summer 2015 grand opening, Rick Harrison, owner of Pawn Plaza, announced two additional tenants today: So-Cal Speed Shop and Vegas Flip Flops, joining Rick’s Rollin’ Smoke BBQ & Tavern on the upstairs deck.


Owned and operated by hot rod enthusiasts Lenny Ribaudo, Sr. and his son, Lenny Ribaudo, Jr. and their families, So-Cal Speed Shop offers more than 100 different T-shirt designs in addition to hats, jackets, stickers, automobile related signage and memorabilia. So-Cal carries some of the most sought-after brands including Mooneyes USA, Clay Smith, Old Guys Rule and Laid Back Clothing.


Vegas Flip Flops will feature flip flops and sandals in a wide variety of styles, designs and colors for everyone to put their best foot forward in a city with more than 300 days of sunshine a year. Husband and wife owners Marchello and Lisa Tanasi say life is better in flip flops and look forward to offering locals and tourists such top brands as Cobian, Havaiana, Olukai, Reef, Rainbow and Teva, to name a few.


“Being a family owned business ourselves is at the heart of our success and we are thrilled to welcome two more family-owned businesses to Pawn Plaza,” said Rick Harrison. “I understand So-Cal is the number one T-shirt seller in the world, and I know a little something about successful T-shirt sales! As much as the pawn business has flip-flopped over the years, we’re happy to have experts on flip flops joining our Pawn Plaza family.”


Vegas Flip Flops and So-Cal Speed Shop join Rick’s Rollin’ Smoke BBQ & Tavern, Smoke’s Poutinerie and Rita’s Italian Ice, with more tenants expected to be announced in the coming weeks.


Pawn Plaza is located at 725 Las Vegas Boulevard South, just south of the World Famous Gold & Silver Pawn Shop, home to HISTORY’s “Pawn Stars.” For the latest news and information on Pawn Plaza, visit or Like on Facebook.
