SANDUSKY -The Ohio Lottery is pleased to recognize The Kroger Co. #987 as Retailer-of-the-Week for the week of April 21, 2014. The Kroger Co. #987 will be recognized on Cash Explosion® on April 26, 2014.

There is nothing like cash to get Lottery player attention. Being able to cash all winning tickets is a promotional tool that the Kroger Co. uses. The employees there know the value in having enough money on hand to cash all winners. They say it is very helpful to their business, which is located at 508 W. Perkins Avenue in Sandusky.

Head cashier Agnes Bauman says they also promote Lottery by word of mouth. She says when customers come to buy a ticket they tell them about new promotions so that customers will have a better understanding when making their purchase. They also promote Lottery with the use of Mega Millions and Powerball jackpot signs. The Lottery terminal displays the on-line tickets that the company sells, and a winners’ numbers board and how-to-play pamphlets are available for use.

The Winstation vending machine carries 25 instant games and one game is carried over the counter. Keeping all bins full also promotes Lottery sales. Their advice to upcoming retailers is to make sure employees know the different games, can explain how to play them and have enough money on hand to cash all winning tickets. Customers are very happy when they get their winnings without having to find a place that has enough money for cashing. Kroger Co. #987 has a weekly sales average of $9,173 for instant and on-line games.

The Ohio Lottery recognizes one outstanding retail partner who offers courteous service and sales enthusiasm. Retailer-of-the-Week is chosen based on recommendations by their Lottery sales representative and regional sales office staff.

Lorain County residents can tune into Cash Explosion® on WEWS ABC Channel 5 in Cleveland. The Cash Explosion show is carried on 14 stations across the state at 7:30 p.m.
