LEXINGTON, S.C. — A lucky SC resident bought a winning Powerball ticket from this Stop-N-Shop on N. Lake Drive.
“We are happy that our customers won and it helps business too,” says Stop-N-Shopo employee Ivan Dsouza who has worked at this gas station for almost 15 years.
“I was so excited! Some girl showed me on her phone that somebody had won a million dollars," Dsouza says, "I rushed to my phone to text my boss that we had just sold a winner here.”
This isn't the first time this gas station has had a big winner.
“We have been lucky of late because we sold a $30,000 winner in the Holiday Riches on Christmas Day. And we sold two Lucky Lady Jumbo Bucks $100,000 winner and then we sold a $10,000 winner too last year so we were good last year we got three winners and then this is a good beginning for us- a million dollar winner is very nice.”
“I think its great," customer John Perdue says, "I love this store, I love the location, I love what the Powerball does for the state. I like to do it if I have any cash on me- just a quick little fun thing.”
Dsouza says the stores good luck comes from their excellent customer service. "The main thing is customer service. You give a smile and you make a person’s day. You don’t know what the person is going through the whole day- he’s worked hard, he might have a bad day… when he walks into the gas station, you always have a smile on your face. That’s why we pull in a lot of crowd here and my customers are very nice to me too.”
The winning ticket is still unclaimed so if you bought a PowerBall ticket from Stop-N-Shop on N. Lake Drive by Old Cherokee Rd., make sure you check your ticket.
