A former Russell Street pawn shop is being torn down.
Mike Weeks, owner of Palmetto Recycling, is in the process of tearing down the former Williams Pawn Shop located at 990 Russell St, on the corner of Russell and Windsor. The lot is across the street from the old Gulf gas station.
“I am recycling everything I can,” said Weeks, who also owns the approximately 1-acre piece of property “I have recycled most of the bricks already. All the wood will get recycled.
