Rachel Vanderwiede, one of two clerks of this store, said that she has “no idea” who hit the jackpot. “It is driving everyone nuts. They wanted to know why [he or she] has not come forward. I do hope it was one of our locals. A person who visits on a regular basis and, hopefully, deserves it very much. This is going to be great for the store, great for publicity, great for customer service” the clerk said.

The Mega Millions winners has 180 days to claim the prize. He/she can either collect $281.2 million as one-time lump-sum cash option or 30 annuity installments. Tuesday night’s jackpot sits at $40 million with $25 million cash option.
