COMSTOCK PARK, Mich.–  They’ve been known to sell a couple of winning tickets in the past.

Party World off Alpine Avenue in Comstock Park says they’ve seen a steady stream of people coming in Wednesday afternoon before the big $425 Powerball Lottery drawing.

People call it the lucky store. They’ve sold two Mega Millions tickets and countless smaller winners over the years.

It’s enough to make lottery hopefuls go out of their way just to buy a ticket for one of the top five largest jackpots in history.

“I was heading down to Grand Rapids to make a delivery so I stopped here at Party World and got some Powerball tickets,” said Mike Fitzpatrick. “Two of them have won here already.”

“We get them coming from all over,” added Becky Pitsch of Party World.

“We’ve had people drive as far as Detroit, Muskegon, even farther to come and buy a ticket for a chance to win because they hear about us on the news a lot.”
