The winning ticket for the 7th largest Powerball jackpot was purchased at the Marietta Liquor & Deli located at 27985 Bradley Road in Sun City. Jeff Lindsay said that he stopped by the Marietta Liquor and Deli, owned by the Alberre family to buy some Scratchers. He went in to cash a winning scratcher and while there decided to buy 10 Powerball tickets. Lindsay left the ticket sitting on his kitchen counter until hearing that the winning ticket was purchased in Sun City won the entire jackpot.
“We are obviously thrilled with this tremendous stroke of good luck and are still getting our arms around what it means for us,” said Jeff Lindsay. “We are private people and do not want to change who we are or become public figures and ask that people appreciate and respect our privacy. In order to help manage what has already been a somewhat overwhelming process, we have engaged a number of financial, legal and other advisors to guide us and help us make the best decisions possible.” Lindsay said that he would like to make the most of his newfound wealth and would like to make it last for many generations.
Marietta Liquor & Deli will receive a $1 million retailer bonus for selling the winning ticket.
