It is not hard to recognize that Lottery is an important part of the Dairy Mart, located at 3380 Lagrange Rd, in Toledo. As soon as you arrive at the store, you see Ohio Lottery posters hanging on the doors and jackpot signs hanging in the window. This Ohio Lottery Retailer-of-the-Week shows exemplary commitment to be a great retailer.
Special promotions and second-chance drawings are a regular happening at Dairy Mart. The two Lottery terminals are manned during the store’s busy hours to accommodate its Lottery players. The inviting, dedicated Lottery area makes players feel comfortable and welcomed. Winners are posted and updated continually, so customers know how many winners the store has had.
Dairy Mart has built its Lottery business by making sure the newest instant tickets are visible and point-of-sale materials are always up to date. The owners always talk with customers to let them know of the new games and the current jackpots. They also post the “hot numbers” of the week on a light up board.
To be a successful Lottery agent, store owner Chihab Jarouche offers this advice, “Pay attention to every customer and be polite. Tell your customers “try your luck” and keeping your customers informed on every game you have to offer.”
Dairy Mart averages $13,840 in weekly sales for both instant and on-line games and carries 58 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. Dairy Mart will be recognized on Cash Explosion® on Saturday, August 18.
Lucas County residents can tune into Cash Explosion® on WTVG TV 13 in Toledo. The Cash Explosion show is carried on 10 stations across the state every Saturday at 7:30 p.m.
