Our Story

Pochels Appliance and TV was founded by Ray Pochel in 1940 where he sold appliances, televisions, fuel oil, and furnaces. In the early 1950s Pochels was made a local landmark by staging an event where a woman, referred to as "Flagpole Kitty" who sat atop a little house on top of a flagpole for approx. 3 months.

In 1986 Pochels was purchased by 2 brother in laws in 1999 one of the partners retired. In 2001 Pochels partnered with Maytag and became a Maytag Home Appliance Center. In 2006 Pochels was purchased by the remaining partners son and a 20 year long Employee. One is smarter the other is better looking, and Pochels is still running strong.
