The Kimberly Diner on the Boston Post Road was demolished in the past few days.

“When I drove by on Sunday I noticed there was no Kimberly Diner,” said a Milford Mirror reader. “There was some heavy equipment and a big hole in the ground.”

The diner closed last year, bringing to an end the 43-year business run by the Tsopanides family.

The diner closed because the property had been sold to the car dealership across the street. A Colonial Toyota spokesperson at the time said the diner would be knocked down and the property would become a parking lot for Colonial employees.

Tim Tsopanides said the family always intended to buy the property, and thought that eventually they would. But the former owner of the land died before such a transaction could take place, the family said.
