Frederick Allen was established by Freddy Allen in 1947 originally situated on Albion street. In 1975 Ronald Charles Jarvis purchased the business after working closely with Freddy Allen for many years. Eventually the shop was re-located to Winchcombe Street, where the store continues to trade to this day. His son Tim came into the trade at the age of 17 and took over in 2007 following his father’s retirement. His sister Sally joined the business soon after and continues to work alongside him.
