    Since Reeds Ferry Market opened at 5:30 a.m. Sunday, dozens of excited regulars have stopped by the small, independent convenience store in New Hampshire that sold the winning Powerball ticket to congratulate the owner and chat about the win, store owner Sam Safa said. He said he doesn’t know the identity of the winner, but hopes one of the regulars from the over 100-year-old store in Merrimack, about 25 miles south of Concord, won the nation’s eighth-largest lottery jackpot.

    “I’m very excited and overwhelmed,” said Safa.

    He said that by selling the ticket, it felt like he himself had won. The store will receive a $75,000 bonus for selling the winning ticket.

    75 grand for a half billion dollar ticket?

    It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.

    The publicity brings them more business, and the superstitious will come there because they think it's a lucky place.
