Dear PoPville – What’s Up with Winner Co. Grocery in Shaw?

Dear PoPville,

A question that has been nagging at me: there is what appears to be an Asian grocery 1332 9th St, between N & O, called “Winner Co.” I imagine you’re familiar with it, but a view is here. Over the past six months, I’ve tried to stop in three or four times, but every time (after trying to buzz in — per the instruction found here), I’ve been told that they they are closed. I’ve tried middle of the day on weekends, around 6.30 pm on weekdays, and the result has been the same. Is this actually a store? A wholesaler? A front?

I went in a few months ago and didn’t really find anything to my taste. But it def. had items for sale – like dried fish and a variety of sundries. There was a very elderly couple in the store. Anyone know if they’ve closed?
