Welcome to Night Vale Wiki

Stan's Pawn Shop was a pawn shop located in Night Vale. In "'98" (probably but not certainly 1998), the pawn shop became famous throughout the town when it released a virulent strain of Ebola as part of a fabulously effective, although perhaps overly literal, viral marketing campaign. Night Vale Community Radio host Cecil Palmer noted that the unconventional advertisement wasn't topped for "ingenuity" until the 2012 PYRAMID-based Flakey O's ad campaign.[1]

In 2014, Cecil referred to Lucinda's Pawn Shop as Night Vale's only pawn shop, so Stan's Pawn Shop has presumably closed.[2]
