Lotto lady sells last ticket

PALMS 'Lotto lady' is leaving the building.

Gloria Lee, who has worked at the Palms Sub Newsagency for the last 13 years, is moving to Albury and her customers say they will miss her.

Ms Lee says she will also miss them because she loves the opportunity to chat to them when they visit the shop.

Gloria was born in Coffs Harbour and has worked at newsagencies in Park Beach Plaza and at Grafton as well as at Palms Shopping, so many of her customers are old friends.

"I love it, it's all I've done I love the customers and I have a great boss," Ms Lee said.

"They're all trying to make me stay."

While she likes dealing with other aspects of the business, she said the lottery section was her favourite.

Over the years she has had the pleasure of selling quite a few winning tickets, including a $3 million win for a Powerball syndicate and a $2,290,344 Lotto win.

She said despite buying lots of tickets she had never won anything substantial but she is willing to bet that after she moves to Albury, she will find herself working in a newsagency.
