SPRINGFIELD, Ore. — Throughout the day there wasn’t a moment inside the Dari-Mart off Harlow that someone wasn’t buying a Powerball ticket.
From the moment local mini marts opened their doors Wednesday morning, people trickled in and out to buy their ticket. More than $30 was spent on Powerball at times. In fact, most people did purchase multiple.
Stores like Amazon Market and Deli and others reported more than $500 worth of lottery sales by lunch. But clearly it’s these last hours that make for that Powerball fever, and dreams are floating all around.
Every employee we spoke with had bought their tickets as well. So while they wished their customers luck, they’re sort of bluffing.
You have until 7 p.m. to get your ticket or tickets. The drawing will be Wednesday at 8 p.m.
