Owner May Lose Store If N.J. Lottery Goes Private
Feb. 1 (Bloomberg) -- Bakulesh Patel, owner of Pantry Farms convenience store in Ewing, New Jersey, talks with Bloomberg's Elise Young about the possibility that Governor Chris Christie will turn the state's lottery over to a private manager.
The Republican is reviewing the one bid his administration received. Though New Jersey had a record $2.7 billion of lottery-ticket sales in fiscal 2012, Christie is confident he can do better. (Source: Bloomberg)
