Local Lottery Winner
Christmas was a little more merry for a local man who scratched his way to a big lottery win!
A customer at the CitiStop Convenience store in Weaverville purchased a $10 Holiday Gold scratch-off ticket on Christmas Eve and won a million bucks.
Members of an unofficial "scratcher's club" that meets at the store each morning say the big winner was a regular customer.
Steve Propst, lottery player, "we're happy for the guy, especially it being local and everything, him being from here, and like I said it's good for the store man, they sell a lot of tickets."
Regulars say there have been some $10,000 winners in the store before but this is the first million-dollar winner they're aware of.
