SOUTH SHORE / WIMAUMA, FL – MAY 1: A demolition crew from Cross Construction Services (CCS) finished tearing down the Copper Penny that closed in 2013 and started on Village Plaza that was vacated in March to make room for an Aldi discount grocery store in Wimauma, FL.

The Copper Penny Restaurant, about 30 yards south of the strip mall, is now completely gone with the sign being the last thing to go that was brought down this afternoon.

UPDATE 2016: See Aldi under construction

The demolition crew will be working on the rest of the strip-mall next week and then the stand-a-lone building of Boggs Jewelry and the Dentist office will soon follow.
