Rocky’s Inc is named the Jan. 22 Retailer-of-the-Week

Rocky’s is this week’s Retailer-of-the-Week.

The fact that Rocky’s has sold Ohio Lottery games since 1991, is one of many reasons that they have been named Retailer of the Week.

The small community in Waynesburg is happy to have a store like Rocky’s to buy their favorite Ohio Lottery games. Most of their customers come in daily. The loyal and helpful cashiers know what their customers want and give them fast friendly service every time.

Game promotion is very important to them, so the store makes sure that they have a large selection of tickets that are always available, and they always keep the jackpot amounts displayed.

In order to be a successful Lottery agent Rocky’s Vice President Brenda McKinney offers this this advice; “Make sure you have a broad selection of tickets and suggestively sell.”

Each week, the Ohio Lottery recognizes one outstanding retail partner who offers courteous service and sales enthusiasm. Retailer-of-the-Week is chosen based on recommendations from the store’s sales representative and regional sales office staff. Rocky’s will be recognized on Cash Explosion® on Saturday, Jan. 27.

Stark County residents can tune into Cash Explosion® on WKYC, TV 3 in Cleveland, OH. The Cash Explosion show is carried on 10 stations across the state every Saturday at 7:30 p.m.
