Mantua –  Jimmy D’s Lil Store of Mantua has been named the Ohio Lottery’s Retailer-of-the Week for the week of Feb. 16, 2015.

Honesty, enthusiasm for their customers and offering a full selection of Lottery games are among the reasons for Jimmy D’s Lil Store’s success.

Store owners Jim and Debbie Belt host their own in-store promotions to draw attention to new games. They post news of big winners in the front window of their store. They’re known for promoting EZPLAY® Games, the Ohio Lottery’s growing category of instant/online games.  They display an example of each EZPLAY® Game, placing them behind the counter for customers to see.

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.

Jimmy D’s Lil Store will be recognized on Cash Explosion®, the Ohio Lottery’s TV game show, on Feb. 21. Residents of Portage County can tune into Cash Explosion® on WEWS TV5 in Cleveland. The Cash Explosion show is carried on 10 stations across the state every Saturday at 7:30 p.m.
