Anyone know what happened to lotto store in the mall?
The Last Owners seem to be facing some rather heavy legal matters with the lottery people and I believe that Sonny or someone from Eddie’s News will be taking it over .
I think the lottery corp took over operations of it from the previous owner in November and had someone else run it. That person did run into some serious legal issues and about a week after being found guilty in court in late January they were removed from the lotto centre.
Was closed for about a week and was reopened about a week ago with another local businessman taking over.
Lots of rumors going around regarding the issue, I wonder if there’s going to be any official statement?
