Wapak Marathon

1003 Defiance St.
Wapak Marathon Named Retailer-of-the-Week
WAPAKONETA, OH – Wapak Marathon is located in a close-knit community. Store owner Terry Hutchison and the staff have formed close relationships with each customer. A dedication to Lottery and customer service is why Wapak Marathon is this week’s Ohio Lottery Retailer-of-the-Week.

To help promote the Lottery, this store has a dedicated Lottery play area with a KENO monitor and a WinStation vending unit. Scratch-offs are on display at the counter. Employees know their customers, and always greet them with a smile.

Lottery Sales Representative Greg Hiestand recommended Wapak Marathon because this store has the best trained staff in all aspects of Lottery procedures. New games are activated as soon as they arrive, and employees do a great job of cashing all winning tickets. This store is very clean and has an attractive Lottery play area.

In order to be a successful Lottery retailer, Terry offers this advice: always keep your staff educated and trained properly on all Lottery equipment and procedures. Make sure you put out the latest games as soon as they arrive.

Wapak Marathon averages $12,304 in weekly sales for both scratch-offs and online games. This retailer carries an average of 48 scratch-offs from over the counter and through the WinStation.

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. Wapak Marathon will be recognized on Cash Explosion® on Saturday, April 10.

Auglaize County residents can tune into Cash Explosion® on WHIO TV 7 in Dayton. The Cash Explosion show is carried on 10 stations across the state every Saturday at 7:30 p.m. Viewers can also stream the show on the Cash Explosion website and on the Ohio Lottery mobile app.
