Schadenfreude! KDLT’s Anndrea Anderson jumps on the news that Badlands Pawn has laid off a dozen employees as a sign of doom for Brennan’s last foothold in South Dakota:
Now there are signs that Badlands Pawn could be the next casualty.
Roughly a dozen Badlands Pawn employees have been laid off this week – about half of them from the Badlands Weekly television show.
KDLT News reached out to Brennan, who said he could neither confirm nor deny the closure [Anndrea Anderson, “Some Badlands Employees Laid Off as Brennan Sells Speedway, Dollar Loan Centers,” KDLT, 2016.12.29].
The Badlands Weekly crew posted what appears to be their farewell infomercial this week in the form of a sophomoric Gilligan’s Island parody:
The infomercial, its coarseness an unintentional paean to Trumpism, advertises that the pawn shop continues to sell off off some of the rock memorabilia it displays, as announced in their December 7 infomercial.
