Business glance from the Bass Lake area
Petty-Cash Junction, a national payday loan/rent-to-own franchise, has opened a branch near the Bass Lake area.
“So, it’s time for lunch, and you’re a few bucks short on cash?” states the company brochure. “We’ll tide you over until at least 5 p.m. (that day, no later). You deserve an advance on your meal.”
Regarding the rent-to-own portion of the enterprise — which features flat-screen TVs, wide-screen TVs, poorly-made furniture and outdated PCs — is “the standard setup, exactly how it’s always been,” said Tug McNabb, franchisee/manager and former police chief of Bass Lake.
Petty-Cash Junction is the oldest business in the modern world.*
