Customer Question

Where can I purchase fireplace coal.

I am trying to find a place to purchase fireplace coal.
Cannel coal, Buck coal or any large chunk coal
I can burn in my fireplace.
This should be available in bags of 60lb to 100lb.
I used to buy 60lb bags of cannel coal from
a coal yard in Skipack, PA
They can't get it anymore.
I live in south Jersey.
Would be willing to travel to Reading Pa area
Wilkes Barre PA Scranton PA area
Allentown PA Bethlehem PA Easton PA

Hi, I'm Douglas and I am here to help you resolve problems with your heating and cooling equipment.

Joe, there is a company in Pottsville, PA named Penn Coal which is fairy close that carry several varieties of coal. I did not see Cannal coal. that may have been a specific vain that is exhausted but they can tell you what you may use as a substitute.

Their web-site is and they have contact information, they can sell in small bag quanities or truckloads. Surely if you have access to a pick-up they can get you a pick-up load.

They seem to appreciate the guy who burns a chunk here and there.
