For the past couple months, Cobble Hill's irreplaceable variety store, Winn Discount, slowly winnowed out its stock, announcing with big signs in the windows a "storewide remodeling." The process seemed to take forever, but recently the signs were taken down and the shelves restocked. And the place looks—exactly the same.
Same aisle set-up, same sort of merchandise, and all kept in the same places they were before as far as I can tell. Plastic containers in the first aisle, toys and party supplies in the last aisle, etc. It's cleaner and more organized, that's for sure. But remodeled? I don't think so. Which is good news for those who worried that the old-school place would loose its small-town soul in the revamp.
Anyway, glad to have the place back in full-throttle business.
