It’s an ordinary Friday and you pop in to your local Food Lion for some supplies for the Labor Day weekend.  While you are there you pick up a Cash 5 ticket, sure why not.  This North Carolina grocery store just sold a 1.2 million dollar winning lottery ticket.

According to Channel 9, lottery officials said the Cash 5 ticket was bought at a Food Lion on Cambridge Commons Drive in Charlotte, North Carolina Friday night. The ticket was a lucky one.  It matched all five numbers Friday night in the Cash 5 drawing. We aren’t sure who won it yet.  The winner has 180 days to claim his or her prize.  They may not even know they won yet.  If you purchased a Cash 5 ticket Friday night at Food Lion on Cambridge Commons Road, your life is about to change.

The winner has 180 days to claim their prize. This North Carolina grocery store just sold a 1.2 million dollar winning lottery ticket. Come out come out wherever you are and get all that money. To learn more, get all the details from Channel 9 right here.

I am more of a scratch off lottery ticket girl. Is there any particular store in North Carolina that is known for producing lottery winners.  Did a little digging and found some research done by Channel 9 in Charlotte.  Lottery officials say there is no such thing as a “winning store” but tell that to the people that were on a winning streak at a store in Gastonia. Some people say the Times Turnaround store on South New Hope Rd. has a history of winners. Back in the fall of 2022 there were several big wins for people who purchased scratch off tickets there. For more on that story, get details here.
