A Vernon couple made a life-changing purchase at the 7-Eleven on 32nd Street, and are now $100,000 richer.

Montana Lowley and Jason Campeau’s purchased a Peppermint Payout scratch and win ticket at the store. After discovering that their ticket was a winner, it produced a gamut of emotions.

“I checked it on the self-checker and was in total shock,” said Lowley, after she went back to the store to verify the win. “I didn’t know what to say or feel. I think I started crying.”

Lowley called it a “life-changing experience,” which was “unbelievable, shocking, exciting and relieving all at the same time.”

The Vernon couple plans to put the prize towards a first-time home purchase and look forward to saving for the future.
