Charles and Gladys Woods have been beloved pillars of the business community -- and Camden -- for many years. In fact, Woods Beauty Salon at 609 Rutledge St., is one of the oldest businesses -- and probably the oldest African-American owned business -- in Camden. Gladys Woods started working at La Petite in the late 1950s, above Kennedy’s Barber Shop, then at the corner of Rutledge and Broad streets.
