A Beaver County supermarket sold a winning $1 million lottery ticket Dec. 22, the Pennsylvania Lottery reported.

An unidentified person bought the winning Powerball ticket at a Giant Eagle store in Economy. It correctly matched all five white balls — 01-18-35-39-44 — in the drawing, but not the red Powerball, 11. The winner has one year to collect the prize.

Giant Eagle will get $5,000 for selling the winning ticket.

Another winning $1 million ticket was sold in Schuylkill County in the same drawing.
