The Montana Lottery announced The Short Shop of Miles City as the 2014 Retailer of the Year.

Lottery officials traveled to Miles City on June 24 to surprise the store with the award and celebrate with its employees and customers. Sales Representative Kim Smarsh presented Frank Ngo, owner of The Short Stop, the award on behalf of the Lottery staff.

The award recognizes outstanding dedication, enthusiasm, commitment, performance and high standards for sales of Lottery products. It was created in memory of Sidney native Bob Harper, an influential sales representative and manager for the Lottery from 1987-1999.

To be eligible for the award, a retailer must be nominated by its Lottery sales representative. Even though The Short Stop won this award in 2008, their constant support of the Lottery drove Kim Smarsh to nominate them again. Smarsh, sales rep for the region covering Miles City, said she nominated The Short Stop for its enthusiasm and dedication.

"I would love to video them selling Lottery tickets to their loyal customers. They have so much fun!" said Smarsh. "They are the number one retailer in the state," she added.

Previous winners of the Harper award are:

1999 - Friendly's East, Helena
2000 - Mini Mart #714, Fairview
2001 - Ranch Hand, Eureka
2006 - Schulte's 38th St. Store, Great Falls
2007 - TJ's Gas N Convenience, Livingston
2008 - The Short Stop, Miles City
2010 - Van's Thriftway, Helena
2012 - Town Pump, Wolf Point
2013 - Peres Food Basket, Great Falls

The Montana Lottery was created by referendum in 1986. Since then, it has paid more than $483 million in prizes and returned more than $217 million to the State of Montana.

The Montana Lottery announced the RY Trail Bar & Grill of Flaxville as the recipient of the 2014 Wyman Hewitt MSA Retailer of the Year Award.

Lottery officials held an event at RY Trail Bar & Grill on June 23 to celebrate with its employees and customers. The location is owned by brothers James Miller, Dennis Miller, Rob Miller and Scott Miller. James, accompanied by Dennis and Rob, accepted the award, presented by the sales representative for the region, Kim Smarsh.

The Wyman Hewitt MSA Retailer of the Year award was created in memory of Wyman Hewitt of Clancy, a respected and cherished member of the Lottery team who was lost to a car accident last year. As a memorial to Wyman's character, this award recognized outstanding dedication, enthusiasm, commitment, performance and high standards.

To be eligible for the MSA Retailer of the Year award, a retailer must be nominated by its Lottery sales representative and display certain criteria. Kim Smarsh, sales representative for the region covering Flaxville, nominated RY Trail Bar & Grill for many reasons.

"Flaxville is a very small town in a very remote part of Montana. They can only do as well as they do by being assertive and consistent," said Smarsh. "The RY Trail Bar & Grill takes very good care of their Lottery customers," she added.

The Montana Lottery was created by referendum in 1986. Since then, it has paid more than $483 million in prizes and returned more than $217 million to the State of Montana.
