Dollar General's Million-Dollar Winner Announced

By January 2, 2009

Follow me on:

Charlie Bourque, a resident of Cumberland, West Virginia, has been announced as the lucky Grand Prize winner in Dollar General's Shop and Win Million Dollar Sweepstakes.

Bourque, who is a retired horse trainer, was told that he had won a prize, but not how much he had won. He was brought to his favorite Dollar General store, where he had made the purchase which turned him into a winner, and shown an oversized check with the dollar amount covered. As he removed one cover after another, he revealed the grand prize of a million dollars cash.

According to a Dollar General press release, Bourque said: "It still doesn't seem real to me. I have never won anything like this in my life." Bourque's name was chosen from over 1.7 million entries.

The full list of Dollar General Shop and Win Sweepstakes Winners is available on the Dollar General website. You can also enter Dollar General's new Fresh Start New Year Sweepstakes for your chance to win your share of over $180,000 in prizes.
