I really like this place...everything in there has cherries as an ingredient. Cherry salsa, cherry butter, cherry wine, dried cherries, everything. AND, it's all available to sample! We were pigs...we sampled everything. And, they had $5 flat rate shipping! Everything you wanted, as long as...More

Where to buy Cherry Republic products in SW Michigan (3 Replies)
I'll be vacationing in St Joe beginning next week, with some day trips to South Haven and Saugatuck. Are there any stores in these areas that sell Cherry Republic products? Unfortunately we won't be near their main locations during our visit, and didn't know if non-CR stores sell their products. Thanks.

The front desk suggested North Peak Brewing Company. First we browsed the shops and found the Cherry Republic with all their delicious samples. Then found our way to the North Peak Brewing Company –...More
