First Street Stinker station slated for demolition

Nobody is going to argue this Stinker Station at First Street and Holmes Avenue is a thing of beauty, but if you have a sentimental feeling for it -- say you bought a winning lottery ticket there or met the love of your life while buying a pack of smokes -- be prepared to say good-bye. According to documents at the city of Idaho Falls Building Department, the building and adjoining car wash are going to be torn down this spring and replaced by a new 2,832-square-foot convenience store. The gas pumps will remain where they are.
