The Pie Pan Restaurant & Bakery in Evansville, Indiana, is temporarily closing its doors due to staffing issues.

In a note posted on the restaurant's door, management says they hope to be back open on Monday, Aug. 2, for regular business hours.

The restaurant's assistant manager, Alysha Camp, says the restaurant is so short-staffed that all of its employees are working open-to-close seven days a week, prompting the temporary closure.

She told 44News that she's absolutely heartbroken over the temporary closure.

"When we have to turn people away it's heartbreaking," Camp said. "We have people who depend on us for breakfast, lunch, and dinner - this is the only place they eat. So it's very heartbreaking."

Camp says the restaurant is currently hiring for all positions, including server, prep, line cook, dish washer, host, and more. "We're looking to hire upwards of 10 people as soon as possible," she said.

The restaurant says that updates will be posted on its social media pages.

Scattered rainfall continues to affect portions of the Tri-State and it seems as though it will continue to do so through the remainder of the evening and overnight. After reaching an afternoon high near 80° earlier on, expect temperatures to gradually fall toward 70° by dinnertime before dwindling into the mid 60s by 10 o'clock. Overnight lows will dive all the way back down into the upper 50s by the predawn hours Wednesday; we'll fall to 58° in Evansville. The cold front and associated low responsible for all of our rain chances both today and tonight is expected to stall stall Wednesday, prolonging our isolated rain chances tomorrow, especcially for those of us north and east of Evasnville.
