Gallery: Grandpa Joe’s Candy Shop Opens In Downtown Ocala


Four-year-old Harper Gladney was surprised to find Tootsie Rolls under the lid of a toilet that was set up as a joke display at the new Grandpa Joe’s Candy Shop on the Ocala Downtown Square in Ocala, Fla. on Tuesday, April 12, 2022. The new candy shop named after Grandpa Joe, who came along with Charlie in the movie “Charlie and The Chocolate Factory,” opened in the location of the old Cyrus Rug Gallery on the Downtown Square last Thursday.
