Hughes to remain open throughout lockdown

In Industry News On
- Updated

Hughes Electrical will continue to support local communities throughout the latest national lockdown by keeping stores open to offer customers a ‘click & collect’ service and provide telephone advice.

Customers can call their nearest store – or visit – to make a purchase and collect between 0830 & 1700. Large outlets are open seven days a week and others five.

For those who do not wish to collect in person Hughes offers a home delivery service which will adhere to strict hygiene and distancing protocols.

Additionally, the retailer has extended the hours for its highly successful ‘Shop Live’ service enabling people to view products, and experience demonstrations, from the comfort of their own home via its website.

This is now available seven days a week: 0900 – 2200 Monday to Saturday and 1000 – 2200 on Sunday.

The company will continue support of rental customers throughout the lockdown, while its B2B division – Hughes Trade – will also be operating.

Said chairman Robert Hughes; “It is important we continue to stand by the communities in which we operate, and indeed all our customers, as safely and efficiently as we can.

“As we are once again being asked to stay at home it makes people more dependent on refrigeration for food storage, cookers or microwaves to prepare it and televisions to help pass time and keep up to date with latest developments.

“So, if any appliance does go wrong then people will want to know it can quickly be replaced by a phone call or visiting the internet.

“I would like to give my thanks to all the Hughes staff who are pulling together to support customers at such a very difficult time.”

Hughes Electrical has shops in Cambridgeshire, Essex, Lancashire, Lincolnshire, Norfolk, Staffordshire and Worcestershire – full details at:
