In 2018, 19-year-old Jordan Jackson opened his retail store, Birch & Pen, at Northwoods Mall in North Charleston, South Carolina, becoming the youngest store owner in his town. Now, he organizes numerous pop-up markets featuring his own brand and other local small businesses.
Ever since he realized his talent in styling and how he could make money from it, Jackson wanted to have his own business and be a “young boss.” Before having his own store, he began by selling clothes via his online store where his fashion and design skills gained widespread recognition.
With the help of his supportive mother, Keisha, he launched what was initially known as a clothing and accessories boutique that catered to both men’s and women’s high-fashion, trendy apparel.
