Shopping and Retail

Discover the unexpected while shopping in Great Falls

We’ve got an array of shopping experiences for every taste – something good for the whole family.

Are you into niche board games? We’ve got you covered. High-end cashmere? We’ve got it. The latest riding lawn mowers? Obviously.

Find inspiration at an independent bookstore, a new favorite downtown boutique, or your go-to for all things outdoor adventure! Whatever you’re looking for, national retailers or locally-owned shops, you’re sure to find in Great Falls.

Shopping is centered Downtown, but stores to meet your every need are scattered around – and you’re almost guaranteed to never be more than a 10 minute drive from the next item on your list.

Unique Shops

Central Avenue in Downtown Great Falls is the place to start for a genuine experience of locally-owned and independent shops, although you’ll find them all around town. A skip away from the scenic Missouri River, Central Avenue’s unique boutiques, home design stores, antique dealers and more will always keep you coming back.

Find your cowboy hats and evening suits at Kaufman’s Menswear or the softest cashmere at Blue Rose.

Practice your arrow shooting while shopping at North 40 for beekeeping supplies or discover a hidden treasure under the umbrella ceilings at Feather Your Nest.

Channel your inner (board) gamer at Let’s Play Games and Toys while enjoying a Japanese Kimura Ramune soda or relax with quality CBD oil from Big Sky American Shaman.

Browse Dragonfly Dry Goods, Montana’s largest specialty store, or satisfy your sweet tooth at Candy Masterpiece, a specialty homemade candy shop.

And this doesn’t begin to cover the depth of what we’ve got going on.

Like we said, unique.
