BRIDGEPORT, OH – The employees of Sun Shop Gas & Carry Out go beyond the expected customer service. At 1002 Lincoln Avenue in Bridgeport, owners Mr. & Mrs. Anthony Zeakes and David Zeakes have been selling Lottery for over 30 years. The Ohio Lottery is pleased to recognize Sun Shop Gas & Carry Out as Retailer-of-the-Week for the week of November 13, 2017.
The Zeakes family has built their business by going the extra mile in customer service. They have a dedicated lottery play area, sell every instant game, occasionally have special promotions and will run second-chance drawings regularly. Sales Representative William Boston says this retailer goes beyond what is generally expected and will cash all tickets. He notes that they are open to the suggestions that he provides concerning Lottery sales.
“Asking for the sale usually gets the ball rolling. Cashing all tickets leads to buying more tickets. The variety of instants make it possible that a discerning player will eventually find a game that they like,” manager Chuck Bellville continued, “The happiness that erupts when a customer realizes that they have won is priceless. Most of the time they buy more tickets so everybody ends up winning.”
