HARRISONBURG, Va -- A Valley store sold a million dollar ticket for last week's big Powerball game. Now, the store owner is deciding what to do with the money she will receive.

The store that sold the big winner was Mr. Be's off Route 11 North. Now the store owner will get $10,000 for selling that ticket!

The store owner said ever since she sold that winning ticket, she has seen a lot more customers. She said in the 13 years that she has owned the store, she has never sold a ticket this big.

Now, she's already planning what to do with the money she will receive.

"I want to share it with my people, my coworkers,” said Aecha Lim, the store owner, “I have two managers. They do an outstanding job for my store, so I want to share it with them."

She said she wished a regular, local customer won that million dollars and instead it was someone just passing through the Valley.
