Needs on Your Tombstone USA Visit

Convenience Stores in Tombstone

When visiting a town for a vacation or holiday, sometimes you need supplies. Maybe you’re looking for refreshments or snacks, water, milk for the little ones, band-aids, sunscreen, etc.

In the historic section of Tombstone, some shops offer water. That’ll be easy to find.

For instance – T. Miller’s Mercantile on 6th & Allen St. has cold bottled water. Especially in the summer most shops, such as The Shady Lady, have water available.

A few other shops offer a couple of convenience items – but not many. (Shops or items!) If you’re in town, on Allen Street – you can check into one place, which carries some sundries. Try Madame Mustache between 4th & 5th.
