The Republic of Floyd Emporium is quirky and sarcastic and we have a little bit of everything. Our T-shirts are screen-printed locally and we sell many Floyd- and Virginia-made foods and goods, plus over 250 craft beers and fine wines. Whatever you’re looking for, from AA Batteries to Zinfandel, you just might find it here, and even if you don’t you’ll probably still leave with a smile.
We are friends of Tom Ryan working together to keep “The Republic of Floyd” going as his legacy. When you stop in you will see our motto: Never forget why we are doing this. Don’t try to be Tom, it can’t be done! “Floyd Time” is a mindset, not a business model. Remember, calendars are a bad idea. The customer isn’t always right, listen to Mr. T-Bone. Walk home when it makes sense. Floyd and Tom’s memory always come first. Laugh at yourself (and others). Quit when it stops being fun. …and BTW, it’s still fun.
