There’s great excitement in the store at the moment as news is filtering out that we sold the winning ticket. Customers are flying in and out the door, checking their tickets and asking all sorts of questions! It’s created great buzz in the town altogether. It’s nice to get some good positive news for a change and we’re absolutely delighted to be part of it. We’re delighted for the winner and wish them the very best of luck with their nice windfall and hope they spend it wisely!”, he said.
