The $429.6 million jackpot winning ticket was sold in nearby Mercer County and matched the 5 white balls and the Powerball in the Saturday drawing, according to New Jersey Lottery officials.
The store on Chambers Street tweeted out, "Congrats to one of our lucky Customers who won the #PowerballJackpot" and state lottery officials confirmed it.
The winning Powerball numbers were 5-25-26-44-66 and the Powerball number was 9.
The ticket was purchased in New Jersey's capital as a cash ticket and is valued at $284 million, state lottery officials said.

Individual tickets have only a 1 in 292 million chance of having the jackpot-winning six-digit combination. "Not a victor in the bunch, not even close", he said.
