Store owner Mary Tourish has been running the local family-owned service station since 2007 and was in complete shock to get the call that her shop had sold the winning ticket: Im still shaking to be honest with you, I just cant believe it. To think that one of our customers is walking around 1 million richer is just unreal!
You start thinking about what an amount like that can do for people and I mean it really would change your life. Were the main shop in a very small village, I mean you couldnt be more local if you tried. Because were so small youd never really think that wed sell one of the big winning tickets, youd imagine it would be one of the larger shops that would, so its just fantastic for us, it means everything.
January and February can be a really tough time for retailers, but something like this creates such excitement and gives us a real boost. I wont get a wink of sleep over the next few days, Im absolutely buzzing!.
