WHEELERSBURG, OH – At 220 Center Street, Speedeemart #1 has found success in striving to promote lottery products, and the Ohio Lottery is pleased to recognize Speedeemart as Retailer-of-the-Week for the week of April 25, 2016.
Business owner Robert Rutman has described his business as exciting, busy and fun. The business is always busy because selling lottery is constant throughout the day. Although at times selling can be stressful, Rutman says it is fun when a customer wins. He makes sure all of his employees are well-trained in the use of lottery equipment to keep up with the store’s fast-paced sales.
“We keep our dispensers full, activate all new books and post winners so customers can see how many winners our store has had. Most of our customers invest their winnings back into lottery products and even the smallest win brings a smile to customers’ faces,” he said.
Rutman said the business started out small in 1986 and gradually began expanding instant games in order to satisfy customer needs. Today Speedeemart carries 33 instant games and has a weekly average of over $24,500.
Lottery sales representative Rebecca Carter says customer service skills at Speedeemart are excellent. This makes the purchase of a ticket easy. The store has the ability to cash $500 winners, which is a plus and their dispensers are full and clean of clutter allowing customers to see the variety of thickets available for sale.
Speedeemart will be recognized on Cash Explosion®, the Ohio Lottery’s TV game show, on April 30. Scioto County residents can tune into Cash Explosion® on their local Cable stations. The Cash Explosion show is carried on 13 stations across the state every Saturday at 7:30 p.m.
Congratulations Speedeemart !
