Loved the atmosphere in the store. The staff were so friendly and helpful, but also gave you plenty of time and spact, they were not pushy at all. There were samples EVERYWHERE. Prices were reasonable. Can't wait to go back. Wish we had one closer to home :)

Cherry Republic aka. the cherry store, is where you can get just about anything cherry-flavored, and sample it too. We bought cherry ginger beer and cola which was terrific. We also sampled the cherry salsa and spicy cherry BBQ sauce, which is delicious and a new favorite in our house. The cafe in the back has, as you would guess,... More

This is a great store full of great products- all cherry- and a FANTASTIC little themed play area for kids... But it's pricey and touristy. It's fun but didn't feel authentic.... I'd rather go to a small boutique or, frankly, an orchard in season.

Went to the Charlevoix store - very nice ladies waiting on us explaining all. Had a little taste of everything. A taste of Cherry Wine as well. Ended up buying gift packs for my family as the products are just so nice. They packaged them nicely for free. Must go place

If something can be made using cherries to eat you will find it here. I recommend the original cherry salsa and the Cherry horseradish.

Great samples! They keep it fresh and well stocked. Bought some great cherry mustard and cherry jam. Wasn't too fond of their wines.

Every time we visit Traverse City, we go here to taste and purchase their cherry treats. I really like their fruit spreads as well as their salsa. The people that work there are very friendly; and, even if you buy nothing, they are still worth the trip.

This is a most stop in TC--it has EVERYTHING cherry and has so many fun and unique offerings. They offer terrific samples too--so you can easily try most everything before you purchase it. Love their products--love their store!
