"The entire team did a remarkable job handling the huge crowds and providing great customer service," said District Manager Terry Jobb. "Our sales are so high because our store is on the Alabama state line, where they do not have a lottery."

Two locations have even been featured in the news. Love's 344 in Memphis, Tennessee was featured in a story by WREG-TV.
