MORAINE –K & R Supermarket has worked hard, partnering with the Ohio Lottery to have a strong presence in the neighborhood. Kemah Etayem owns the business at 3351 Main Street and Murad Salash manages the business that will be expanded with upcoming renovations. The Ohio Lottery is pleased to recognize K & R Supermarket as Retailer-of-the-Week for the week of April 17, 2017.
“Sales are growing and Murad makes sure he carries the right products for his customers,” says Lottery sales representative Maria Tharp. “He has exciting plans to grow his lottery business. Murad takes pride in getting new games activated right away.”
While K & R Supermarket is a rather new location, Murad says he’s happy with growing sales and is excited about the future because of the new deli. He says they will be able to capture more KENO sales.
Building relationships with every customer that comes through the door, Murad says they try to have a great attitude with customers no matter what kind of day they have had. The business already has a dedicated lottery play area, but that will be expanded. They are looking forward to having second chance drawings as well as a special promotion for the grand opening of the restaurant, deli/meat department.
“We always try to be pleasant, answer questions about games they like, have good conversations with them and make them feel good every time they visit the store. We let them know of new games and make it a point to talk about jackpots in order to gain excitement for online and easy play games. Winning makes them happy, so they come back to play more.”
K & R Supermarket carries 33 instant games. Weekly sales average $4,241 for instant and on-line games.
