In case you were wondering what kind of store will move into the former Winn Discount store at 299 Court Street, wonder no longer. The large storefront will become the thirteenth outpost of NY KIDS Club and Preschool. Posters announcing a January 2017 opening have appeared in the windows in the past few days.
NY Kids Club will be offering "a 6,000 square foot, two story complex featuring five classrooms and state-of-the -art gym space". Besides a pre-school, the space will be rented out for birthday celebrations and will offer summer camps, dance, art, and language programs.
The NY Kids Club coming to Cobble Hill continues a trend towards children's programing here in South Brooklyn which reflects the area's new demographic. Right across the street from this location at 292 Court Street, a LePort Montessori School is slated to open.
Just one block away on Court street, Champion's Martial Art Studio just opened its doors in January of this year.
Countless other businesses catering to young families have recently opened or are in the process of opening.
As for the Winn Discount store which closed in September 2015 after decades in the neighborhood, it is still missed by many in the neighborhood. How about you?
