So Long, Winly, We Hardly Knew Ye

We thought something was up when the plastic sheeting went up, covering the windows a couple weeks ago.

The frayed and disappearing banner didn’t provide much hope.

The “For Lease” and “Sorry We’re Closed” signs made it obvious, though. It would appear Winly Cash & Carry will be no longer.

We’ve been surprised before, but all signs point to it being closed. Perhaps Paldo Market, 7-11, Plaid Pantry, Foster Market, the soon-to-be Bread & Roses Market, and nearby WinCo and Kaah Market meant Winly was never long for this world.

It was fun while it lasted.

    The land that Winly is on is zoned CM2 in the comp plan – it would be nice to get some sidewalk-fronting mixed-use development there instead of a parking lot that breaks up the urban form.

    • Agreed. Uderused and car-centric lots like these are almost as damaging to Foster’s aesthetic and urban form than some of the vacant and dilapidated buildings that pepper the corridor.

    I thought Paldo was closed too. I know that someone has already bought the building to open a brewery– they were having trouble getting the owners of Paldo to move out after the sale went through.

    • I wandered in there about three months ago. It was dead, but open.

      Now about this brewery. Do tell…

        The new owner was at the FABA meeting a couple months ago. He had been trying to buy the building for a year. They finally got a deal done but the owners of Paldo weren’t moving out. I am not sure about the details.

        All I know is that I asked him if it would (or could) be like Z Haus or Laurelwood with a kids area, and he said they wouldn’t be that kind of brewery. It would be more of a loud music, bands, kick ass kind of brewery. It sounds awesome, even if I can’t bring my kids.
        Fingers crossed!
