Jordan Hepton and Clancy Johnston, Teen Entrepreneurs Open Resale Clothing Store (WATCH)

Posted: Updated:

High school can seem like a full-time job to some teenagers, but Jordan Hepton, 17, and Clancy Johnston, 16, wanted to take on more. Last month, the Idaho teens went into business together and opened the doors to their own clothing resale store, Fashion City Exchange, according to KTVB.com.

"This is all our money. All on us," Johnston told KTVB. "This summer really isn't about making money, it's more about making connections and learning stuff."

Using money they've raised over the years, they buy gently used, name-brand clothing, including popular styles from American Eagle, Hollister, and Nike. The boys then sell their wares to local shoppers at reduced prices.

Although the store is likely just a summer project, they may consider hiring a manager once school starts up in the fall. Both co-owners plan on studying business in college.

Like Hepton and Clancy, young entrepreneur Sam Allen has already jumpstarted his career. Last year, then-19-year-old Allen was featured on CBS News for turning his passion for interior design into a business.
