BRYAN - The customer of a College Station convenience store is now a millionaire

Someone purchased a winning ticket in the $500,000 Extreme Cash Blast scratch-off game at the Wellborn Grocery on FM 2154. The ticket was worth $2.5 million.

The winner told the Texas Lottery Commission they want to remain nameless. Instead, they asked Jeff Harris, a local attorney and College Station ISD School Board member, to claim the winnings.

Since it sold the winning ticket, Wellborn Grocery will receive a $10,000 retailer bonus.
