AVON – How did the owner of One Stop build his Lottery business in six years? By listening. Greg Karger heard the suggestions of his lottery sales representative and paid attention to the games his customers liked too. At 37565 Colorado Avenue in Avon, the Ohio Lottery is pleased to recognize One Stop as Retailer-of-the-Week for the week of March 27, 2017.
He describes the business as efficient with a friendly environment and knowledgeable employees. He promotes Lottery by discussing new games with the customer. He uses all Lottery marketing materials to alert customers of current and upcoming promotions. He knows his customers by name and the games they enjoy. He hangs all winners’ posters in a highly visible spot for all to see and keeps all games in stock.
“You must educate your customers on the most current games and be patient in order to build your Lottery business,” he said.
Sales representative Brandon Antz recommended One Stop because they are always willing to go that extra step for their customers. Antz says they take a proactive approach to working with the Lottery and they are looking forward to a Lottery presence expansion in the store after an upcoming renovation.
One Stop carries 50 instant games over the counter. Weekly sales average $8,000 for instant and on-line games.
One Stop will be recognized on Cash Explosion®, the Ohio Lottery’s TV game show, on April 1. Lorain 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 One Stop!
