FOND DU LAC - A lucky store on the Miracle Mile in Fond du Lac continues its winning lottery streak.

Korneli's Main Street Express had a $10,000 winner in Wednesday night's Powerball drawing after selling about $50,000 in tickets that day.

"We're all very, very excited, store employee Chastity Mauch told Newsradio 620 WTMJ's Michelle Richards.

"We hoped we'd have something to keep our winning streak alive and kicking."

That winning streak stretches back to the 1990's.

The store's biggest claim to fame was six years ago, when the store sold a $208 million Powerball ticket. 

Mauch explained that they were only slightly disappointed that no one bought the full $587.5 million jackpot ticket at their store.

"That would have been nice, but we'll take what we can get.  We're excited to see who it is."

Mauch told Richards the store's lucky history kept everyone on their toes yesterday.
"It was incredibly busy.  We had a full staff up here.  All the employees pitched in extra hours to help."

She says people from all over came to buy their tickets at Korneli's, including West Virginia, Tennessee, and Texas.

"They know this is the spot that has had so many winning tickets.  They feel this is the luckiest place to buy them."
