Another millionaire was made thanks to a winning New Jersey Lottery ticket sold a couple of miles away at a Shrewsbury Avenue convenience store.
The winning $1 million ticket was purchased at Kwik Farms, 590 Shrewsbury Ave., right over the border of Shrewsbury, technically in Tinton Falls, this week for the Oct. 23 Powerball drawing.
“Congratulations to these fortunate lottery players who purchased the winning tickets and to the retailers that sold them,” said the Lottery’s Executive Director Carole Hedinger in a release. “For selling the winning tickets, the retailers have become three more of the Lottery’s ‘lucky locations’ overnight.”
This is the second time a $1 million ticket, or more, was sold at the Kwik Mart.
In May, a Tinton Falls resident bought his winning Mega Millions ticket for $73,279,052 from the borough convenience store.
Giuseppe "Joe" Garofalo chose the cash option and split the $198 million jackpot with a second winner from Virginia.
