Having spent half of my childhood in Pickens County, there will always be a part of me that is rooted in rural life. I have much love for tire swings, going off roading, and teaching underage children to drive…

Yes, I said it. You can read it again and it’ll say the same: Underage children driving.  It’s part of what makes life in the country worth living in the country.

The unfortunate truth about some smaller towns is that populations have drifted to more heavily populated areas. However, the people who choose to remain in the smaller towns still have certain needs, and they shouldn’t have to travel 30 to 45 minutes for the necessities.

This is why entrepreneurship is key.  Sometimes, it takes recognition of a void to feed a drive for success. Such was the case for Monique Williams, an Aliceville who opened a beauty supply store in September 2017.

Sure, area drug stores carried certain beauty supplies; and there was even a long-standing beauty supply store in Aliceville, but Williams saw that certain needs just weren’t being met and that inventory was minimal.  So, she decided to open a business of her own, catering to the needs of the people.

A celebration of Mo’s Beauty Supply Store’s 3rd Anniversary will be held at the store today (12 3rd Ave SW, Suite A; Aliceville, AL 35442) beginning at 12pm. It is said to include goodie bags to be given away in addition to cash!
