MEDINA – Start small, build from there and take the advice and opinions from customers is how Nikunjkumar (Nick) Patel promotes his Lottery business. At 238 N. Court St. in Medina, the Ohio Lottery is pleased to recognize VIP Mini Mart as Retailer-of-the-Week for the week of December 4, 2017.
Having a clean, organized and dedicated play area, Nick carries the top 25 games. He takes time to explain games, offering customer service with a smile. The business highlights the new games, and having regulars, he knows what they like to play and will have those games ready for them when they come into the store. Because Nick has worked with Lottery for almost 20 years at different locations, it took him only six months to build his inventory to what he now has.
Nick says he likes to teach and educate about the Lottery and he gives service with a smile, hoping winners will return. He always asks for the sale because he knows that winning can help with the holiday and gifts for others.
Lottery sales representative Spencer Sedar notes that Nick has taken huge measures to turn this store around by increasing the product line, cleaning up the store and organizing the product. Sedar says Nick takes pride in ownership.
VIP Mini Mart carries 51 games over the counter and has a weekly sales average of $1,758 for instant and on-line games.
VIP Mini Mart will be recognized on Cash Explosion®, the Ohio Lottery’s TV game show, on December 9, 2017. 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 VIP Mini Mart!
