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?

Charlevoix Fire

Posted by bob on 29th Dec 2016

Fire in Charlevoix.  On Christmas Eve morning, Cherry Republic lost our Charlevoix store to an intense fire in the beautiful building we reside in.  No one was hurt.  We will be OK, but our hearts go out to our landlord, the 17 other tenants in his destroyed building and this close knit resort town which has had two major fires in six weeks.  Our President went to visit the store and here his blog about it.

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 ...
