Payal, André, and Collete!

Posted by sarahm@cherryrepublic.com on 16th May 2019

During their first visit, André left thinking, "Who knew there were so many great ways to eat cherries?!" Payal and André take great pride in the fact that since their discovery of Cherry Republic of Ann Arbor, they have sampled nearly every one of our products. They’ve even made the trek to Cherry Republic of Traverse City to check out our northern neighbors! As much as they love our store, it’s Colette, their French bulldog, who is our biggest fan. "We love that you let Collete come in here ...

Introducing Citizens of the Republic

Posted by sarahm@cherryrepublic.com on 27th Mar 2019

  Have you heard of the famous ‘Humans of New York’ blog created by Brandon Stanton? He interviewed and photographed individuals in New York City, including quotes and short stories from their lives alongside candid portraits.

Well, one of our core values at Cherry Republic is Liberty, or wholeheartedness and passion, which means we work from the heart to touch hearts. Anot ...

Cherry Delivery Man in the Making

Posted by bob on 1st Apr 2016

I am on vacation this week, so I thought we would share a story from one of our fulfillment team members making his nephew's dream come true on his way down to our Ann Arbor store. Below is the story from Tom. Tom and Stephen looking good! Wednesday afternoon I loaded up the big white truck and hit the road to stock our Ann Arbor store with it's two week rations of cherry goodness.  When our logistics manager asked me to take the drive, I thought it would be fun to stop and spend the nigh ...

A Golden Opportunity

Posted by LauraAnn on 24th May 2012

This post was written by Alex Lowry.  She and her family were Cherry Republic's millionth gift box recipients.  Inside this box they found our Golden Ticket, which automatically earned them a trip to Glen Arbor and a peek into the inner workings of Cherry Republic.  Here are her reflections on their trip: I need to start with a confession. Last year I, a lifetime Cherry Republic faithful fan, unsubscribed from the Orchard Report. I know it sounds blasphemous, but after several years of unsucc ...
