CHATHAM, NJ - The winning "Jersey Cash 5" ticket worth $172,949 drawn on Saturday was purchased at the BuyRite Wine & Liquor Store at 650 Shunpike Road in Chatham Township.

None of the three employees questioned Tuesday at the store knew that the winning ticket had been purchased at the Chatham Mall establishment. They all declined to give their full names for publication.

The BuyRite in Chatham had previously been known as Chatham Wine & Liquor before it moved a couple doors down to its bigger location in the same mall a couple of years back.
