A Look Back at 2016

Now that 2017 is upon us, it is time to take a look back at all of our Cherry Republic memories from 2016. Here is a blog with a few of our favorites and most memorable moments from January through December 2016.

Opening a store in Frankenmuth: We joined a great community of shops in Little Bavaria in May when we opened our doors in River Place Shops. Click here to read and see more.

Red Ladder: Our marketing team was hard at work last winter creating “The Red Ladder” line of unique products.  These products celebrated the natural creativity and craftsmanship of Northern Michigan. It was a big hit with customers from the moment we opened our new addition in Glen Arbor!

New Products Cherries on Fire: We decided to make summer 2016 hotter than it already was by adding a new spicier cherry salsa to our customer favorite Cherry Republic salsa line.  Check out this short video featuring our staff having some fun trying this salsa for the first time. 

White Linen BBQ and CR Experience: We packed this summer and fall full of the Cherry Republic Experience, Orchard tours, Harvest dinners, Cherry Stompers day camp and more! Click here to see some great photos of our White Linen BBQ. 

Setting World Records! This one goes down in the record books! Our Cherry Stompers jumped in 12 lakes in 2 hours.  Watch this great video to get ready for next summer because we are going for 13 lakes in 2 hours!

Vacation Giveaway: We had the privilege of giving away two vacations in Glen Arbor this summer and fall.   It was fun to meet some great cherry fans– the Chestnutwoods from Ohio and the Kalapatapu family from Texas.

Fire in Charlevoix:  This was not the way anyone wants to spend Christmas Eve we will be OK, but our hearts go out to our landlord, and the 17 other tenants in his destroyed building and this close knit resort town which has had two major fires in six weeks. Now it is time to think forward and rebuild.
