WICHITA FALLS, TX (KAUZ) -

A brother and sister duo, who come from a family of entrepreneurs, will be celebrating a first this Saturday. 

Brenna Pohlod, Owner of Clinkers, and her younger brother Rayce Pohlod, Owner of Texoma Tech Solutions, began their home-based businesses from the ground up. 

Saturday, they will host a grand opening for their first storefront on Kemp Blvd. 

"Making the step by yourself is really hard to do financially, emotionally. (It's) time consuming, all of it. And then when he was looking for a bigger space I was like let's try this. Let's see if we can do this together," Brenna said. 

The dual space provides plenty of room for Rayce to repair electronics we use every day. There is also a back room that allows Brenna to host parties and store her personalized works of art. 

The idea is to scratch each other's back. Customers who come in to have their phone fixed can also buy a hand painted glass or vice versa.

This journey began several years ago for both Brenna and Rayce. They are both excited to see it come to fruition in the city they call home. 

It also helped to have a family full of business owners to guide them along the way.

"It's an adventure to have all of us doing our own thing so if we have a question we can ask another family member and they probably have an answer," Rayce said. 

It's a stepping stone in the sibling's separate business goals. But it is a move they are happy to make together. 

"If you just have a passion for whatever you are doing as long as you put your heart and soul into it then whatever it is is going to be great," Brenna said. 

The storefront is located at 4216 Kemp Blvd. next to Discount Tire. The store is open Monday thru Friday 10:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and 10:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. on Saturday. 

A grand opening celebration is set to kick off at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, November 11. For more information about Clinkers click here. For more information on Texoma Tech Solutions click here.
