A central Iowa town is about to get a long-awaited grocery store thanks to a couple of lottery winners who invested part of their jackpot winnings in the business.

The 4,000 residents of Bondurant, about 14 miles northeast of Des Moines, will be able to shop in the grocery or eat at its adjoining restaurant by the end of March. Currently, the town only has convenience stores offering a few grocery items.

Workers are busy stocking the shelves of the $4.5 million business called Brick Street Market and Cafe. Mary and Brian Lohse, who won a $202 million Powerball jackpot in 2012, made it happen.
