"Oh heck yeah. We rushed right over," said one ticket buyer.

Located in the 13500 block of West Camino del Sol, lottery officials say the Safeway sold a $5 million ticket in January of 2015 and a $50,000 ticket last November.

"As soon as I saw the line was getting shorter I ran right over," said Dewna Norlin.

Clerks at the store are used to being busy. They sold 5,000 tickets before noon.
