Sapp's Pawn, Gun and Archery has been serving Gainesville and North Central Florida for 45 years.
In 1962 E.B. Sapp Sr. opened the very first Pawn Shop in Gainesville, Florida above the Happy Hour Pool Room on south Main street. From there the shop was moved to a building across the street from the local Train Station on north west 6th street and 3rd avenue.The Train Station is now the site of the SFCC Downtown Center. E.B. Sapp Jr. and his wife Lillian purchased the shop in 1968. Then Seventeen years later in 1985 the shop moved once again for it's final time just 2 blocks south into Brownlee's Feed and Seed Warehouse. Their son, G.F. Butch Ford after working for his parents for several yeasrs bought the business in 1987 and is where Sapp's Pawn, Gun and Archery remains open for business today. A family owned and operated tradition.
