20161215_102052_resized_2

CHARDON, OH – Lucky every day. That is how Hambden Corner owner Adam Pilarczyk describes his business located at 13906 Gar Highway. He’s been a Lottery retailer since December of 2008. Though it was a bad time to start a business, he said, he based his business on having good customer service, and that is how he survived.  The Ohio Lottery is pleased to recognize Hambden Corner as Retailer-of-the-Week for the week of January 9, 2017.

The majority of the customers are loyal players and they are always greeted with a smile. Not only do the employees know customers by name, but they also know the games they play. With a dedicated lottery play area, employees ask for the sale, are patient, knowledgeable about the games, draw times, draw days, various kinds of bets and most importantly, how the equipment works. All this speeds up the playing process.  One person is dedicated to lottery. They order, control inventory and get dispensers ready for new instant games.

Additionally, Hambden Corners posts winner signs inside the stores and outside there is window bling for potential players and regular customers to see. Hambden Corners cashes all winning tickets when possible because they attribute their business growth to good customer service. The business carries 41 instant games over the counter and has a weekly sales average of $8,657 for instant and on-line games.

Hambden Corners will be recognized on Cash Explosion®, the Ohio Lottery’s TV game show, on January 14. Geauga 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 Hambden Corner!
