Corey Harrison (also known by the nickname Big Hoss) (born May 1, 1983) is Rick Harrison's son and Richard Harrison's grandson, who started at the shop at age of nine, polishing jewelry. He is now the manager of the shop's day-to-day operations, and 30 of its employees, makes the most purchases of anyone in the shop, and is being groomed by Rick to be the boss one day.
Corey often comes into conflict with his father and grandfather over his knowledge of the shop's inventory, his responsibilities as a manager, and his overall judgment in sales, in particular his purchase of expensive items. Following gastric lap band surgery in 2010 and a change to his diet, Harrison's weight went down from 365 lb (166 kg) to approximately 250 lb (113 kg) by July 2011. In Season 6, he tells the elder Harrisons that he will take a job at another business if he is not given a 10% partnership in the shop. He remains with the shop after he is given a raise and a 5% partnership, with the possibility of a greater stake in the business in the future.
Corey Harrison is married to Charlene Harrison. The couple are said to have been high school sweethearts. Charlene was working at a retail store until Pawn Stars began, at which point she and Corey decided together that she could quit working in retail since they no longer really needed the extra paycheck.
In March of 2010, Charlene opened Sweet Tempered, an online boutique selling handmade, one of a kind accessories with a punk rock, roller derby, and rockabilly type flair. The shop has a wide range of items available, including checkbook covers and pocket calendars, baby bibs, aprons, tote bags, Christmas stockings, jewelry, t-shirts, and hair accessories such as headbands, bows, and clips.
