Sebastian Mini Market is Located in Rugeley in the county of Staffordshire.

Rugeley is a historic market town in the county of Staffordshire. It lies on the north-eastern edge of Cannock Chase next to the River Trent and is situated between the towns of Stafford, Cannock, Lichfield and Uttoxeter. At the 2001 census the towns population was 22,724.

The major roads into Rugeley are the A469 from Cannock and the A51 Lichfield to Stone. A new eastern bypass was opened in 2007 to facilitate the development of new employment areas on the former colliery site and to reduce congestion in the town centre.

Sebastian Mini Market is ideally situated in a busy and vibrant shopping parade alongside other complimentary retail businesses such as a Beauty Salon, Hairdressers, Chinese Take-away, Fish and Chip shop and Domino’s Pizza, thus benefits from high levels of footfall and passing trade.
