Mike Fink
Pawnbroker / Notary Public

In March 1997, Pawn Broker / Notary Public Mike Fink opened "Copy Rite", a pawn shop located in downtown Biddeford, Maine. In 2004 he moved his business to Portland Maine's government district where Copy Rite changed to "Guitar Grave". Since then, Mike has helped the local music community, music venues and thousands of low income Mainers with his well-balanced and fair approach to sales and pawnbroking, changing the attitude of many who look at pawn shops in a negative light. In 2014, Mike recieved the prestigious "Citizen Award" for assisting the Portland Police Department with the recovery of stolen items and for helping the DA with prosecutions that would not have been possible without store video footage. Check out the link below for more information.
