Lucky shop takes day off after winning Lotto sale

Houston Chronicle (Internet / Print) 02/10/06 The Shop & Save on North Yale might have been the luckiest place in town Thursday, but you couldn't tell it by all the long faces. One by one, would-be customers in search of cigarettes, sodas and lottery tickets arrived only to be brought up short by this hand-printed sign in the widow: "Sorry we close today." The store's staff — who sold the winning $64 million ticket in Wednesday's Lotto Texas — had gone celebrating. This week's heart-stopping jackpot remained unclaimed as of late Thursday. The winner has 180 days to claim the money before it is declared unclaimed and transferred to a fund to benefit the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston.
