Folks looking to play their favorite numbers or scratch off games now have a new place in the community to buy lottery tickets.
Owner Nick Sabol said he began remodeling the store in mid-November, when he acquired the business. He spent another two months attending classes to acquire lottery machines through the state.
“It takes awhile,” said Sabol of New Sewickley Township.
The Lucky Ticket sells everything from Mega Millions, Cash 5 and Powerball tickets to soda, coffee and snacks.
Customers might remember the location as the former Vic's Lottery. The store closed after the previous owner died last year in a car accident.
Through a friend, Sabol came across an opportunity to rekindle a lottery store at the same location and decided to pursue the venture.
Store hours are 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
Sabol said he plans to offer earlier store hours and might hire some help after business picks up.
“We’ll see how things go,” he said.
