N.J. Shoprite That Sold $315M Powerball Lottery Ticket To Donate $30K Bonus


Against a backdrop of gummy bears, birthday balloons and greeting cards, the owners of ShopRite of Hackensack accepted a $30,000 ceremonial check from the New Jersey Lottery on Monday as a bonus for selling a Powerball ticket worth $315.3 million.

The jackpot winner – who has not come forward – bought the ticket at the South River Street store before Saturday night’s lottery drawing. Saturday’s winning Powerball numbers are: 3, 6, 9, 17 and 56. The Powerball is 25 and the Multiplier is 3.

“We’re proud to have sold the winning ticket here,” said ShopRite owner Lawrence Inserra, who accepted the check with his nephew, Carl Inserra. The Inserras said they plan to donate the check to charities in the Hackensack area. Read more.





  1. Why don’t they turn around and give bonuses to their OWN hard working employees?! Don’t you think that would motivate them and get them to become even better workers? Who cares about some outside charity that has nothing to do with them? Charity starts at home! Shoprite/Wakefern has a golden opportunity to show loyalty to their dedicated employees, and it won’t cost them a dime, and they are blowing it! It shows, they don’t value their own employees. Shame on Shoprite/Wakefern!
