While many dream of winning big in Lotto, there’s only one place on Waiheke where it’s happened more than 64 times.
Ostend Dairy, located on 23 Belgium Street is known as Waiheke’s most famous Lotto store for a reason! In the past nine years, four First Division winners and more than 60 Second Division winners have been sold by the dairy, as well as numerous Third Division winners.
With the most recent big win being a second division ticket sold around September/october last year, Parmjit of Ostend Dairy says the little store has had plenty of luck.
‘‘Everyone still comes to the shop for their tickets – without their support, it would have been hard to provide last year,’’ she says.
‘‘For a little store, that’s why I think we are lucky!’’
Make sure to grab your tickets today for the $22 million Powerball drawn tonight at 8.20pm. Ticket sales close at 7.30pm.
Like the past winners, it might be your lucky day at Ostend Dairy – but even if the numbers aren’t in, you’re sure to strike gold at the store, where a huge range of groceries, Indian foodstuffs and postal services meet every need.
Stop in for a delicious scoop icecream on sunny days, or if the weather is cooler, make sure to grab one of the famous chicken, lamb and vegetable samosas instore.
For delicious and easy recipe ideas, make sure to check out the Indian food on display, including spices, fresh naan bread seven days a week, ready-to-eat curry packets and 12 types of 1kg raw dals, plus many more surprises round every corner.
There’s also national and international postal services instore with a full range of boxes, bags and stamps. With everything under one roof, it effectively means Ostend Dairy’s a one-stop-shop – stop in to post a letter or purchase a lotto ticket and you can also grab the weekly groceries or a quick snack for the road.
Now if that isn’t striking gold, we’re not sure what is!
