CHARLEVOIX CHERRY REPUBLIC - TEMPORARILY CLOSED There’s a reason this fair city is named Charlevoix the Beautiful. Perched on the shores of no less than three freshwater lakes — Lake Michigan, Round Lake, and Lake Charlevoix — this was the ideal location of Cherry Republic’s first Up North outpost. Opened in 2009 on Bridge Street in lovely downtown Charlevoix, we invite you to stop by and sample some of our 200+ cherry products including salsa, jams, chocolate covered cherries and much more. You’ll also enjoy daily (and complimentary!) wine and soda pop tasting. Damaged by a fire in December 2016, our Charlevoix store has recently been completed renovated and is brighter and more welcoming than ever before with new flooring, a redesigned bar, and an outdoor space to enjoy your favorite cherry treats. Be sure to stop by and see our pretty new store!

Building is closed as the restoration is in progress. It is undetermined when it will reopen. Hopefully in Spring 2018.

We stop here every time we are in the area and eat our way through the place. Yes, it is embarrassing but they have sooo many samples out and they are all so yummy. The free samples work though. We always end up buying. The...More

I love this store because you can almost taste everything they sell. And most of it is really tasty and good quality from cherry chocolate covered espresso beans to cherry bbq sauce. Everything they sell has to do with cherries. Definitely a store to go...More

While we were shopping in the store, an employee over heard I enjoy hot and spicy. They did not have out the samples of the chili, chocolate cover cherries. They immediately went into the back room and brought me samples! When I asked what type...More
