Why we don’t have a hughes office furniture store
The Minnesota Wild announced a partnership with Hughes and will begin selling traditional office furniture at its stores beginning this fall.
The deal is expected to bring Hughes to the Minnesota market for the first time since the company announced it was closing its doors last year.
The company has since shuttered its retail outlet in North Minneapolis and will no longer sell office furniture.
The partnership will include the use of Hughes’ iconic Hughes logo on office furniture, the company said.
In a statement, Hughes President and CEO Kevin Hughes said he is thrilled to partner with the Minnesota Wild to provide our customers with quality office furniture that is affordable and comfortable.
“It is a wonderful opportunity for our employees and our customers to enjoy the same comfort and beauty that we enjoy at our Hughes Minneapolis location,” Hughes told the Star Tribune.
Hughes also said the new partnership will benefit the company in the long run.
“We will see great success with this partnership and its potential to enhance our customer service and brand reputation in Minnesota,” Hugess said.
Hugles is based in Bloomington, Minn., and operates in more than 20 states.
It has more than 50 stores in Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Nebraska, South Dakota and Texas.
