If you ever thought about stopping by Ryan’s Cash & Carry on Smelter Avenue – better do it quick.
A sign on the door says that the last day of business will be May 31st.
I don’t know when it opened, but it has been there since at least the summer of 2002 (when I moved to Great Falls).
It is located at 833 Smelter Avenue NE.
I only went in there once – they had a great bargain on Pepsi, so I stopped in to get two cases a few years ago. It seemed … well, dark and sad inside, and the only employee that I saw did not seem very happy to be there. Maybe I just stopped in at a bad time.
