GWG Wig Boutique comes to the BPW, Thursday, May 21, for its monthly meeting. GWG Wig Boutique provides a large selection of fashion wigs and specialty wigs, for women undergoing chemotherapy or suffering from permanent hair loss, accessories and makeup.
What's unique about this wig boutique is its proprietor, Gail George. George brings to her new business and the community, a history of professionalism and successful entrepreneurship. As reported by The Pilot, "Because of her accomplishments as a successful businesswoman, George was cited in the book,"Women Entrepreneurs Moving Beyond the Glass Ceiling," by Dorothy P.

A few facts that he highlighted were that

n The road system within the county is not efficient, especially roads going east and west.
