The Inquirer's aptly named Bonnie Cook today tells the story of the sale of the Phoenixville diner Vale-Rio and how it's being offered for sale on eBay.

Here's the listing, whose price is listed at $225,000.

The classic 1948 diner closed in February 2008 and was moved from its longtime spot at Nutt Road and Bridge Street to make way for a Walgreens and a Starbucks.
