For the first time in Hughes Petroleum 58 year history they will close their doors Sunday afternoon at all locations to reward and recognize their staff and families with a big event. The stores will be reopening Monday at 7:00am with business as usual.

"Hughes understands by transforming the employee experience it significantly improves customer service, not only is it a nice thing to do bringing employees and their families together it is also good business." says Debby Carreau CEO and Founder of Inspired HR.
"Our unprecedented level of commitment to and investment in our people will provide them with a great work experience and enrich other parts of their lives as well," said O'Ryan Hughes, Hughes President. "We believe that this is a serious commitment to our staff and their families because we recognize the importance of a healthy workplace culture and how peer relationships and families can play an integral part in that."
