ASHLAND, Ohio — Flooding in Ashland has forced Grandpa’s Cheesebarn & Sweeties Chocolates to close.

The owners announced on Facebook they would be closed at least through the end of the day.

“Due to flooding Grandpa’s Cheesebarn and Sweeties Chocolates Ashland will be CLOSED today Sunday, June 16th. We apologize for the inconvenience and will get this cleaned up and back to normal as soon as possible,” the post said.

The owners told FOX 8 that no water got inside the buildings.

“We didn’t get any damage. The storage barns where we keep all of our inventory, the water was just two inches from coming in there, that would’ve been really bad. But, it didn’t come in so we’re fine,” said Owner Dick Poorbaugh.

This comes just days after the company announced they would be having a special fudge sale in honor of Father’s Day and National Fudge Day this weekend.

“A lot of people can’t come and enjoy our store. It’s a wonderful place to shop. We would’ve very busy today, being that it’s Father’s Day,” said employee Barbara Gorton.

The company tells consumers that their Norton, Ohio location will remain open from 11 a.m. until 6 p.m.
