Leeners opened in Macedonia, Ohio on October 6, 1996. The original retail store was dedicated to homebrewing and wine making. By 1998 we had expanded our product lines into the many You-Make-Kit activities you now find on our web site. In March of 2004 we relocated to Northfield, Ohio. The company is owned and operated by Eileen Leverentz with help from her husband Jim.
Leeners is unique in that we use all of the products we sell which provides our customers with a level of service that is only available through experience. Our program of product improvement and development combined with regular customer communication and daily updates to our website makes Leeners a family friendly, full service company. Customer service is available from 10am to 4pm ET seven days per week at 800-543-3697 (330-467-9870) or by “direct to the expert” email.
All of the You-Make-Kit™ Brand kits are produced at our facility in Northfield, Ohio. The You-Make-Kit™ Brand is a collection of food and drink related do-it-yourself kits designed to be both educational and functional. Our goal is to teach life skills while creating memorable food products using the techniques and traditions of a simpler and more relaxed time. The DIY experience continues after a kit has been completed because the component parts of all kits may be reordered (refilled) at leeners.com.
