“I’ve been looking for somewhere to live for like two years,” Finney said. “Now I can have a place of my own.”

Finney, who is an assistant general manager at a Pizza Hut, said she was on a run to get gas and chips from Mike’s Food Store on Shelby Road.

“When I saw all those zeroes, I had to wipe my eyes and look again,” she said. “I kept saying, ‘This is not real, it’s not real.’”

Finney took home $71,017 after taxes.
