Clerk Sells Winning Ticket at Plymouth Kwik Trip
Clerk Tina Furlong knows the man who purchased the million dollar ticket.
Furlong was present when the customer found out he had the winning numbers.
“I printed up the ticket numbers, and he’s said, ‘that’s my family, that’s my family’s birthdays. I got to call my wife, I got to call my wife,’” Furlong recalled.
“They don’t have a big bank account like some of those millionaires out there. They’re not millionaires, they’re just everyday, hardworking people like we are.”
Kwik Trip also receives a $5,000 dollar bonus for selling the winning ticket. The store is considering using some of the money to make improvements to the store.
