Columbus– Riverview Carryout has been a lottery retailer for two years, but owner Paul Hahn has ten years of lottery retailer experience. Players will find excitement, high energy, laughter, and fun at 214 S Pine Ave. in Lima, and that’s why the Ohio Lottery is pleased to recognize this agent as Retailer-of-the-Week for the week of November 23, 2015.
Kearston Smith manages the business and says they have the friendliest employees in town along with some friendly competition. Employees compete to see how many winning tickets they can sell. They’re educated in all lottery games, treat customers with respect, and know their names. Winners are always paid, and this keeps customers coming back.
“There is a lot of sales enthusiasm and a once a month pizza giveaway is part of the winner’s circle. We keep our ticket dispensers full all the time and we keep the newest games front and center,” Smith said. “Our winners are happy and can’t wait to come back because of the laughter and fun.”
Sales representative Alex Arredondo says Riverside Carryout has a fun and positive group of people who knows lottery inside and out. They do an excellent job of keeping the bins full and putting up new games. They carry 55 games.
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. Riverside Carryout will be recognized on Cash Explosion® on November 28, 2015.
Allen County residents can tune into Cash Explosion® on WTTE FOX -Channel 28 and WSYX ABC-Channel 6 in Columbus. The Cash Explosion show is carried on 13 stations across the state every Saturday at 7:30 p.m.
