Hughes Department Store, 1000 23rd Ave., Oroville.
As of Friday, December 18, 2015
Two historic businesses – Hughes Department Store and Hughes Warehouse — will close their doors next month.
“We’re going out of business,” owner Jack Hughes said Monday morning. “We feel bad for our employees because it’s going to be a big loss to them” and the community.
Hughes purchased the 1000 23rd Ave., and 1412 Ironwood Street businesses in 2011 “and everything was going pretty good,” he said.
