In the early 1900s, John Hughes worked as an apprentice for Griffith Roberts (Emporium) before taking over the business many years later. He brought his son, John, into the business and subsequently formed John Hughes & Son. They both worked hard and established a business which was and still is regarded as professional, caring, and synonymous with that which is best in a family run business. John Hughes (Senior) retired in 1967.
John worked tirelessly to maintain the work his father had started and served the community not only through the business but in many public and charitable roles.
He then brought us, his wife Phyllis, and sons Arwel and Ieuan, into the business and we subsequently took over when he became ill. Sadly, he passed away in 2003.
We are as passionate in maintaining the high standards, professionalism, family friendliness and care for a business which was established nearly a century ago.
