About Cash Indiana Pawn Shop
Owned and operated by Jack and Cathy Batz. Cash Indiana Pawn Shop is a chain of family owned Pawnshops in NW Indiana. In 1963, Jack converted the Diner Bell restaurant into Jack's Gun Shop at the current Burns Harbor location. For the next two decades Jack’s Gun Shop operated as the one stop shop for hunters, fisherman, trap shooters, and other outdoor enthusiasts. During the early 1980’s economic depression Jack realized the need and opportunity to diversify and expand his business. Thus Jacks Gun Shop was converted into Jack’s Gun & Pawn shop. In 1992, Jack and Cathy opened their second store at the current Lake Station location and then in 1994 they opened their Michigan City store creating today’s Cash Indiana Corporation. From day one Jack and Cathy’s motto has been to treat every customer, as they would want to be treated with respect and fairness. This motto has bought them great success and satisfaction in helping NW Indiana with their financial troubles. ​
