kiosk and convenience is supposed to be the same? I always used it like

- convenience: small supermarket that is usually too small to have shopping carts but still also sells things of daily need (shampoo, toilet paper, milk, cornflakes, bread and spread,...). The typical 7-Eleven store (doesn't exist in Germany btw)

- kiosk: very small store that usually only sells drinks, newspapers, magazines, snacks, cigarettes and the like. Sometimes even so small that you can't go inside but buy things through the window
