A.A. MacCaull moved from North Bedeque to Ellerslie in 1875. He operated a lobster factory and worked in the Peter Millar sawmill. In 1877 he bought the mill property from his Uncle Peter. In 1890, A.A. purchased a building in Ellerslie said to have once been a church and opened a store. He later became Station Agent in addition to keeping the store.

The store burnt down in 1901. He rebuilt on the same location and then sold it in 1909. He continued to operate it, however, for two years by renting from the new owner. In 1911, he built a new store on the other side of the railroad opposite the Ellerslie Station. His steam saw mill was a short distance behind it. The original store built on the east side of the tracks was used as a cannery for awhile and then converted to be used as cold storage by the Ellerslie Cold Storage Company. In 1957, when there was no longer need for cold storage, the building was torn down.

The second store, built in 1911 was also destroyed by fire in September of 1928.

About 1911, in the space between the back of his store and his steam saw mill, A.A. built an outdoor rink, possibly the first in the community. Skates at that time were blades that were strapped onto whatever footwear was being worn.
