A True Mom and Pop Shop
Founded in 2009, Kenny’s Downtown Convenience Store is a locally-owned, mom and pop corner store located in the heart of Great Falls, Montana. Owned and operated by a husband and wife duo, Kenny and Megan Volk, Kenny’s carries an assortment of food and grocery items, tobacco and smoking accessories, and a large selection of discount beers and wines.
Tired of rolling up pipe tobacco? Try our whole leaf tobacco, a cleaner, more flavorful (and yes, cheaper) alternative.
We sell unmanufactured, additive-free, whole leaf tobacco. Because our tobacco has not been processed, the federal and state governments do not classify it as a tobacco product, but rather as an agricultural one. Our customers purchase whole leaf tobacco and then shred it themselves, thus creating their own tobacco product.
Under federal law, there exists a personal manufacturing exemption, where when one makes a tobacco product for his or her own personal consumption, no tax is due.
The lesson here? Our tobacco is really, really cheap.
Espresso to go.
It seems like every local coffee shop these days offers some version of the “best” bean from the Northwest. While the Seattle-centric coffee culture indeed produces very servicable brew, we opted for an Old World alternative.
Kenny’s is the only shop in Great Falls to serve LavAzza, Italy’s best-selling coffee (and the Italians ought to know, right?). Try our full service espresso bar, and we’re sure you will agree.
