Cobblestone Foods--where's the chow?

Walked into the new Cobblestone Foods (what used to be Tuller's). It looks just like Tuller's, only...without the food! It is maybe 1/3 stocked, and looks very skimpy. However, the prices are equal to, or even higher than Tuller's already-high markup. $5 loaves of bread, $7 for a tiny basket of Vermont butter, etc. They do, however, have already-pureed plastic cups of baby food (aka plain boiled and mashed vegetables), so that all those Cobble Hill mommies (you know, the ones that have already taken over the Tea Lounge with their double-wide strollers) have yet another thing to spend their money on. In my opinion, much better food selection and warmer vibe at Stinky Brooklyn, over on Smith.
