For Celina Store #1, its staff and owners, Venket Mada and Anoop Musku, being positive has been a big part of their success as Lottery retailers.
That fact encouraged the Ohio Lottery to name Celina Store #1 the Ohio Lottery Retailer-of-the-Week for the week of March 23.
The store posts signs announcing recent big winners. The store shelves are well-stocked with all the latest Lottery games, and there’s a dedicated play area to enhance the Lottery playing experience.
The entire staff is knowledgeable and enthusiastic.
“We sell winning tickets. That’s why everyone comes here,” says Vinny Bajjuri, the store manager. The store provides prize cashing services for players too.
“They’re able to provide fast service, because everyone is well-trained,” says Ohio Lottery sales representative, Greg Hiestand. “They form long lasting relationships with their customers.”
Celina Store #1 will be recognized on Cash Explosion®, the Ohio Lottery’s TV game show, on March 28. Auglaize County residents can tune into Cash Explosion® on WHIO TV 7 in Dayton. The Cash Explosion show is carried on 13 stations across the state every Saturday at 7:30 p.m.
