The great customer service at Wapok Food Mart, located at 302 S. Willipie St. in Wapakoneta, is just one of the many reason why they have been named this week’s Ohio Lottery Retailer of the Week.
In 2016, Wapok Food Mart’s owner renovated the entire store to make it more appealing and eye-catching for customers. Positive vibes and an enthusiastic approach to customers is very important to their employees. The friendly staff keep their customers well-informed on how to play all online and instant ticket games.
Lottery promotion is key at this store. They have a large variety of tickets on display as well as a dual jackpot sign on in the window. This retailer enthusiastically cashes all winning tickets without hesitation.
In order to be a successful Lottery manager, Tina Applin offers this this advice; “Always activate new instant ticket books as they arrive because customers love new, exciting things. Secondly, always ask for the sale and be as knowledgeable as you can with the Lottery tickets and equipment.”
Wapok Food Mart averages $7,250 in weekly sales of instant and on-line games, and carries 62 instant tickets over the counter.
Each week, the Ohio Lottery recognizes one outstanding retail partner who offers courteous service and sales enthusiasm. Retailer-of-the-Week is chosen based on recommendations from the store’s sales representative and regional sales office staff.
