White Oak Deli has been an Ohio Lottery Retailer for 16 and their experience has lead them to be this week’s Ohio Lottery’s Retailer of the Week.
This store has set the bar of customer service very high. The high volume of customers does not distract the hardworking employees from giving their all. They still manage to recognize the regular customers, and have their tickets ready for them before they can ask even for them.
When it comes to promotion of the games each customer is asked if they would like lottery tickets for that day’s drawing. Big winning tickets are on display for all to see. There is also a dedicated lottery play area for customers to scratch tickets and fill out their bet slips.
In order to be a successful Lottery store clerk James Halusek offers this advice; “Have all instant games displayed in a high traffic area. Display your big winning payouts on tickets. Let customers know what the jackpots are, and what tickets have second chance drawings.”
White Oak Deli averages $15,191 in weekly sales of instant and on-line games, and carries 59 instant tickets from 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. White Oak Deli will be recognized on Cash Explosion® on Saturday, March 10.
Auglaize County residents can tune into Cash Explosion® on WCPO TV 9 in Cincinnati. The Cash Explosion show is carried on 10 stations across the state every Saturday at 7:30 p.m.
