I am happy to announce Leaf Day, our very own Cherry Republic National Holiday. We will be closed today Monday, October 16, to honor the autumn season and all the good in our lives.
I feel like I should apologize to all of you for being closed, but truly, more than anything, I feel compelled to express my gratitude to the hundreds of thousands of people who have supported us so loyally. It is your support that has compelled us to work tirelessly this summer and fall to keep our supply of cherries fresh and bountiful throughout our stores.
Now the staff and I really need a day off! And so, while the leaves are still on the trees and before we get fully engrossed in the hectic Holiday rush, we will take a 24-hour break and celebrate Leaf Day. We hope that you, too, might be inspired to take some time to enjoy this fleeting time of year and the beauty all around us.
President, Cherry Republic
