So far, the shop, which opened May 20, has done well through word-of-mouth advertising by young people who go to the skatepark. Dillon has already had to re-order after selling out of his initial stock of "decks."
Both Dillon, 16, and Luke, 13, have been skateboarders for about six years, and they love the individuality and independence of their sport.
"You can express whoever you are," said Dillon, adding that skateboarders are "all different kinds of people."
Luke said he likes "not having a schedule of where you're going to be. You can just go out whenever you want."
The brothers have learned, however, that running a business is more complicated than skating.
"Starting out, it's kind of scary getting everything together," Luke said.
"It's a different experience," Dillon said. "It's hard work. I didn't think it would be this hard. Now I appreciate what other businesses do. There's a lot of work to it. That's why people should support local businesses a lot more.
"If you have a chance to support a local business, then do it. Because they've got to make their living."
Barbie Sirimongkhon has guided Dillon through the process of setting up a business, including getting a tax number from the state, figuring out credit cards, getting a local permit, ordering the store's inventory and other of the many details of operating a business.
"There are a lot of questions he asks," Barbie said. "I'm trying to teach him."
Paul Sirimongkhon, who works in graphic design at Centre College, is an artist and has his studio in a room behind the skate shop. His paintings also are displayed on one wall of the store.
The store also sells home-made buttons by local teenager John Patrick Allen, friendship bracelets by teenager Sydney Hinton and jewelry and bracelets by Jeanie Hester and Lori Goggans.
Dillon, who plays the guitar, and Luke, who plays the drums, hope to make the store a place where young musicians and artists can put their work on display.
"I want to try to get some music in here, have a certain day when people can come in and hang out," Dillon said. "Maybe we can have some art shows for the younger kids."
Store hours are 2-7 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday and 11a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday and Saturday. Phone: 319-9650.
