Oregon Friendship Foods in Oregon, OH has been named the Ohio Lottery Retailer-of-the-Week for the week of May 18, 2015.
One of 22 stores owned by Ohio-based chain Beck Suppliers, Oregon Friendship Foods offers a dedicated area for Lottery games and good customer service.
Store manager Harold Laramie Jr. makes sure the store advertises its big winners and participates in both in-house and chain-wide promotions that include Lottery. Planning customer appreciation days is one of Harold’s favorite activities, and he makes the Lottery an important component of the event.
In its day-to-day operations, customers know they can cash winning tickets, and employees are knowledgeable of Lottery games and equipment. The store has both long-time, loyal customers and employees.
“Harold is very easy to work with, is extremely pro Lottery and is always on top of everything Lottery – from point-of-sales to new games to high jackpot alerts,” says Lottery sales representative Lisa Brackett.
To be successful, Harold encourages retailers to ensure customers are aware of all Lottery products, advertise big winners and offer a nice variety of tickets.
Oregon Friendship Foods will be recognized on Cash Explosion®, the Ohio Lottery’s TV game show, on May 23. Lucas County residents can tune into Cash Explosion® on WTVG TV 13 in Toledo. The Cash Explosion show is carried on 13 stations across the state every Saturday at 7:30 p.m.
