DinerLuxe, a well-known eatery in Litchfield County, shuttered its doors earlier this month with little warning to the community or its staff, i95rock.com reported.
The restaurant, which hailed itself as "An American Classic," opened in 2014 in New Milford at 108 Danbury Road as a throwback to the 1950s diner. Owners posted no notice about the closure on any of their social media sites, and most residents heard about the closure through a Facebook post, the outlet reported.
The post announced that DinerLuxe's owners only gave its staff little heads up that they would soon be unemployed.
"To anyone commenting thank god, good, etc. please remember there are hard-working people who all just lost their job with 4 days’ notice. DinerLuxe has had three different owners and many different staff and menus. The current staff is worried about paying rent, feeding their families, and surviving.
"If you haven’t been here recently, I feel sorry for you. The staff is awesome and the food is great."
Many of the comments bashed DinerLuxe owners for their decision to move forward with such little forewarning.
