My fiance and I are in agreement. We are fans (as in the 4-star rating of "Yay! Im a fan"), but only because of the samples. The samples are really fun, and bring us into a store that we are then happy we went into. As is perhaps obvious from the name, everything here is cherry. With some stuff (like the tortilla chips) it is less obvious, but for the most part you get bursts of cherry in everything. I love getting gifts from here, like the cherry tea or the chocolate-covered cherries. I keep meaning to try their cherry wine, though a few times now Ive gotten a soda and then strolled Main Street. You do want to bring the bottle back for the extra-hefty deposit, but the whole tradition is nice on a summer day.
The product WAS absolutely lovey Im sure but my thoughtful and amazingly kind friend, who ordered online, missed the fine print that said it needed to be delivered within two days. Consequently, the dark chocolate covered cherries arrived as a melted mass. I called customer service. The very sweet but unequivocal reply was "my hands are tied it was the online purchasers mistake". That kind of reply is such tragic business practice. When I politely said I would remember that, she never even guessed I would remember the lack of support on her part and that I would remember never to order or suggest anyone order from them again!
“Yesstyle is a great online website to binge shop on Asian clothing because of its cheap price, but beware that the quality can be poor too! It is either a hit or miss, so be sure to read the reviews because they are very helpful in determining whether the item is of good quality. ALSO, the sizing is mostly one size, so be sure to check the measurements before purchasing an item. Asians are small. One thing I disliked it that I had to split my order in two in order to get my items quicker. One s...”
Awesome! The staff was so helpful, friendly and knowledgable. There are samples of what Im assuming are there more popular items, and if a sample is not already available they open one up so you are sure you are going to enjoy your purchase. They have a wonderful system that allows you to buy a small treat or create a wonderful, personal gift basket. A great place to do holiday shopping or just pop in. Thank you!
Awesome place to buy cherry related foods. Awesome jams and chocolate covered cherrys. Their soda is also good. If youre a fan of cherrys and wanna experience northern Michigan from the comfort of your home this probably isnt the best place because they dont sell cherry scented sand. If youre not interested in that then enjoy a part of what makes northern Michigan awesome, cherrys!
Such a fun shop! Some friends recommended shopping into the Cherry Republic shop when we were near Glen Arbor, and we loved it! So we were happy to discover that there was another location closer to home. They provide lots of samples, so it is fun to try all the different cherry products. Some of our favorites are the cherry mocha coffee, the cherry salsa, and the cherry bbq sauce :)
They were out of their Balaton wine when I went, apparently their harvest wasnt that good the previous year so they werent able to produce as much. At least thats what the gentleman working there told us. This store doesnt have as much as the one in Traverse City but it still suffices when I get a craving for muh cherry sours :-D
Perfect gift shop for those who prefer local brands. The store has a welcoming staff and samples of most of their products are set up for guests. Want cherry ketchup? They got it. Cherry wine? Yup. Cherry salsa? You get the point. Definitely stop by, youll at least get to taste some delicious samples.
I worked at the original Cherry Republic for several years during high school. The Ann Arbor location tends to lack a certain personality that the original has, which is not necessarily anyones fault but is markedly less awesome. I dont feel at home there as much as I do up north!

I love this place. Lots of free samples of cherry goodness. Free cherry wine tasting flights. Unique and yummy. Plus they ship so you can send care packages right from the store. A Michigan classic and must see when in Ann Arbor!
This place is my indulgence! Every single thing from this store is wonderful. I love the imperial chocolate covered cherries sour cherry patches and the boom chugga lugga soda .cherry republic is every cherry lovers heaven!
Free tasting virtually everything they have stocked on shelves, which is great. Plus their gift wrapping is free of cost as well. Great place to buy gifts for friends visiting out of town.
Absolutely one of my favorite stores. The cherry chips and hot cherry salsa are my favorite. White yogurt cherries and trail mix are a close second. This store is a must.
This is one of my favorite shops in Ann Arbor. Natural wood shelving handsomely displays Michigan cherries in every conceivable way. Staff was great - will visit again!
Michigan regional brand. I noticed this when I travelled to northern Michigan. The cherry based variety of food is chewy or tasty or sweet or sour. I love them all!
Free samples of tons of food. They have a ton of great food items featuring cherry. My favorites are the salsa and BBQ sauce. Havent tried the wine yet.
Every time I walk by, I have to go in! Im a huge fan of their cherry green tea, salsa, and imperial chocolates, not to mention their free samples!
You can essentially get a meal from all of Cherry Republics free samples--dont miss the chocolate covered Cherries and the barbecue sauce.
Though slightly higher priced than I wish it was, cant help but indulge in a bottle of cherry wine every once in a while.
Great place to visit and try all of the delicious samples they have in the store. Cherry Salsa is a must!
Love this place. They are always handing out tons of samples. Great place for visitors to grab souvenir.
Great spot to grab a last-minute gift! Amazing selection of unique edibles. Local flavor!
Very nice staff and great products when in town I have to have their cherry gummies!
This place is a little overpriced (to be honest I just take a bunch of free samples!)
If you love cherry flavor then youll love this place! Free samples were really nice!
Cherry salsa is the best. Everything I tried was great.
Great shop, real products made in Michigan !
Taste the candy! Price is a little high.
Try the Cherry horseradish. To die for!
Great treats kind of cramped when busy.
Cool place. Free samples
