The premises were originally located in Price Street adjoining the Black Horse Pub. However, the company had to move to its modern day premises on Church Street due to major road developments in 1989.

Set up by Alfred John Sellman when Cannock expanded as a mining town the business has always prided itself in being a local family business caring for the local community. It is now a sixth generation family business owned and managed by George Poole and his sons; Ralph and Edward.
