MEDINA- There is a hometown feel to the lottery experience at EZ Shop Food Mart at 6630 Norwalk Road in Medina. Owners Miloranka Baughman and Dragan Nikolic know it’s the way to grow the business. Their customer service for Lottery sales is always on point says Ohio Lottery Sales Representative Spencer Sedar, and that is why the Ohio Lottery is pleased to recognize EZ Shop Food Mart as Retailer-of-the-Week for the week of September 19, 2016.
Selling lottery for 25 years in the small town of Mallet, employees always try to greet customers by name. They cash all winning tickets, have a dedicated lottery play area, keep new tickets stocked and let the customer know that they are happy to see them. The happiness goes even further when a customer wins.
“We have sold some nice winning lottery tickets and it’s nice to see the happiness in winners’ eyes when they can treat themselves to a nice vacation, buy a new car or catch up on some bills,” said Baughman.
Every year during the week of August 12 they conduct a special Anniversary Promotion because that was the day they acquired the store. The business has sold a $100,000 20X the Money instant. Carrying 43 instant games EZ Shop Food Mart has a weekly selling average of $10,244.
EZ Shop Food Mart will be recognized on Cash Explosion®, the Ohio Lottery’s TV game show, on September 24, 2016. Medina County residents can tune into Cash Explosion® on WEWS ABC Channel 5 in Cleveland. The Cash Explosion show is carried on 13 stations across the state every Saturday at 7:30 p.m.
Congratulations EZ Shop Food Mart!
