A Chicago woman recently won $250,000 after purchasing a lottery scratch ticket at a Rogers Park grocery store.

Anita Zildzic purchased the $10 “Crossword” scratch ticket at Sharma Grocery, 6718 N. Clark, according to a statement from the Illinois Lottery.

Zildzic, 46, said she plans to buy a house with her winnings.

“I buy one ticket a few times a week and take my time playing while enjoying my coffee,” she said. “This time, when I realized I won $250,000, I almost spilled my coffee.”

The retailer will receive $2,500, or 1 percent of the prize amount, for selling the winning ticket.
