Rentown Country Store is home of the big cheese. A variety store filled with bulk food, a bakery, deli meat & cheese.
In 1986, LeRoy Hochstetler went to Ohio from his home between Nappanee and Bremen. Amish neighbors asked if he’d bring back some cases of oil for them as well.
He did, and soon he was also getting mixed candies and nuts, as well as farm supplies, for them. “Just grew from there. Took off,” said his son Dennis, who now owns Rentown Country Store with his wife, Leah. LeRoy never intended to go into the retail business. Dennis and Leah never intended to take it over. On May 4, the store moved across Third Road into a new space that’s double the size. Hundreds came to a grand opening May 16. “Sales have totally skyrocketed,” Dennis said.
