28 High Street, Hunstanton
The Hughes Hunstanton branch and its staff stand ready to assist in the amazing (albeit sometimes confusing) world of consumer electronics.
Our 4 staff members posses an unsurpassed knowledge of the products that we sell every day that has been built upon years of supporting our local community, helping visitors, supplying our neighbouring businesses and travelling miles across the country to get specialist one-to-one training with our manufacturers on their products. Our Hunstanton team has cumulative background of nearly 100 years of electrical retailing.
We've been witness to the colour TV entering our lives, the switch from 5 channels (if you were lucky) to having over 50 since the digital switch over. We have watched Betamax and the good ol' VHS tape battle it out only to make way eventually to the DVD and then for HDDVD and Blu-ray to repeat the cycle again over who would be the dominant format. The CRT telly was replaced by Plasma and LCD and now LED. Yet once again we find ourselves in a new era…
The internet is now long established and has given us Smart TVs that can browse the web and catch-up TV services, like BBC iPlayer and 4oD as well as numerous streaming companies like Amazon Prime Time and Netflix and allows you chat to friends on Facebook, Twitter and Skype all while you watch your favourite programmes. Internet radios offering 1000's of stations, and you can even stream music wirelessly around your home – and control it with the phones and tablets that we carry in our hands.
Looking further ahead, 4K ultra HD is rapidly entering our lives, OLED TV's look to shake up the market and washing machines that talk to our mobiles may well be what arrives in our increasingly “smart” homes. Whatever happens, we make it our mission to support you and your purchase in the best way possible by doing what we've always done: offering today's products combined with traditional backup, support, patience and understanding. We know that today's market is full of gadgets and products which is why as far as we’re concerned there is no such thing as a silly question. If you have any questions regarding what we offer just give us a ring, pop in to see us or send us an email.
