It happened at around 7.40pm on Sunday in the Woodstock Road area.
Three masked men, one of them armed with a crowbar-type weapon, went into the store and made threats to a man and woman working there.
The trio then stole a quantity of cigarettes, which they carried away in Bryson recycling boxes.
No-one was injured.
Police investigating the incident have asked anyone with further information to contact them at Musgrave on 0845 600 8000.
