Michigan store owners speak out on Powerball winner

A small town store in Michigan is celebrating after selling the winning $842 million Powerball ticket.

Although the mysterious winner of last night’s jackpot win hasn’t come forward, it was sold at Food Castle grocery store in Grand Blanc.

“It’s rewarding,” the owner’s son, Jacob Nammoshi, told The Post Tuesday. “It’s the perfect spot.”

The small town of 8,000 — near Flint — has a “good community,” according to Nammoshi, and they’re hoping the new millionaire is a local.

Nammoshi found out after an employee arrived at the store early and received a phone call, informing them that the winning ticket had been sold from there. The employee then called Nammoshi, who seemed overjoyed to hear the exciting news.

The employees and owners were so exhilarated by the news, the store posted the news on Facebook, writing: “WE SOLD THE WINNING POWERBALL TICKET.”

The last time the store saw a big winner was a few years ago when a local won $300,000.

The $842 million prize has a cash value of $425.2 million, according to the lottery.

The winning numbers were 12, 21, 42, 44, and 49 with a red Powerball of 1.

It is the first time someone hit the jackpot on New Year’s Day since the game’s inception in 1992 and the first time in 35 drawings that someone won the grand prize.

“What an incredible beginning to the New Year for Powerball!” Drew Svitko, a Powerball product group chair and Pennsylvania Lottery executive director, said in a statement.

The last person to win the jackpot was in October for a whopping $1.76 million.

The lottery’s next drawing on Jan. 3 reverts to the minimum grand prize of $20 million.
