Now, I'm the first to admit that I don't know anything about how to run a business. But I thought one of the cardinal ideas was to have lots of stuff on the shelves around the holidays so you can sell it to people and make money.
Winn Discount, and all-purpose variety store in Cobble Hill, would seem the perfect sort of place to sell a whole whopping bunch of stuff to folks in December: outdoor lights, Christmas decorations, wrapping paper, bows, Hanukkah candles, party hats, etc. But right now Winn Discount has pretty much got...nothing. Well, they're got something. But not much. And there's less of it every day.
That's because the store is remodeling (oh, please, don't make it look like a Rite Aid), so Winn is clearing everything out. But I'll be damned if I don't think this is the worst possible time to schedule a remodeling of your shop. Me, myself, I've already been there a few times the past couple weeks looking for needed holiday things and been sent away skunked. I guess they want to ready for the big January rush when people, uh, buys lots of things.
