Family-owned Tennessee store sold winning ticket
LOS ANGELES - A family-owned grocery store in a small Tennessee town sold one of the three Powerball jackpot tickets.
Rebecca Hargrove, president of the Tennessee Lottery Corp., presented a $25,000 check to Dana Naifeh, owner of Naifeh's grocery store in Munford.
The lottery also gave Naifeh's a fake large purple check with yellow stars on it. A news conference was held between two checkout stations. As the briefing was taking place, customers were buying groceries.
Naifeh said she planned to share some of the bounty with store employees, but was not sure what to do with the rest of it.
The winner has 180 days to come forward in Tennessee. The other winning tickets were sold at a 7-Eleven in Chino Hills, California, and a Publix supermarket in Melbourne Beach, Florida. The California store won $1 million and the Publix won $100,000.
None of the ticket winners have come forward yet.
