Hughes expands in Cambridge

Cromwell customer Hughes Electrical has opened a new 2,000sq ft branch in Cambridge, double the size of its previous store in Burleigh Street. The expansion follows the company’s acquisition of the Darling & Wood electricals business on Cherry Hinton Road in mid 2012.

The manager of the new Cambridge store, Jack Phelps, said: “This is part of a continuing programme of investment in our branches, designed to give customers a pleasant environment in which to shop and also to choose from the widest product range. This is why we are delighted to have doubled the size of our store in Cherry Hinton Road. Despite reports about the challenges facing the electrical retail industry, we are convinced those companies that continue to invest in providing top-quality customer service combined with an excellent product range will succeed.”
