An up-until-now unidentified New Jersey man who was one of three to win this month's $411 million Powerball jackpot has finally been revealed.

The grocery store where he bought his ticket—and always bought his tickets—will also score $30,000 for selling the winner; it plans on donating the money to charity, reports the Star-Ledger.
