Kennewick store among luckiest in the state

Tri-Citians hoping to strike it rich with the lottery should buy their tickets at the Pik-A-Pop store on Columbia Drive.

The Kennewick convenience store at 526 W. Columbia Drive has been recognized by the Washington Lottery as the luckiest store in the area for selling the most jackpot tickets in the lottery's 30-year history.

The store, part of a Texaco gas station, has had a number of memorable winners, officials said, including one late last year where a Kennewick man won $10,000 and shared his winnings with employees.

The Lottery released its "Luckiest Stores All Stars" list to celebrate its 30th anniversary.
