LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WAVE) - Valentine's Day came a little too late for one popular chocolatier.
Cellar Door Chocolates was ordered to close after a court ruled that the three stores must shut down because the business is more than $700,000 in debt.
The debt consists of taxes, fees and penalties.
The Kentucky Department of Revenue filed the suit last year. And last week, a judge ruled in its favor, clearing the way for law enforcement to close down the three locations -- South Fourth Street, North 13th Street and inside Butchertown Market.
The stores can re-open once the debt is paid.
As of Friday afternoon, Cellar Door’s website and Facebook made no mention of the closures.
