From snacks to spines: Old Boise gas station gets new use

The former Stinker Store on Orchard St. at Overland Rd. will soon see a new use.

The convenience store and gas station closed last year and boarded up the windows. Now, Idaho Spine and Sports applied to convert the building for a small physical therapy clinic.

The 1,848 square foot building will see a remodel, with new walls subdividing the convenience store space to create rooms for examination and physical therapy work. A few new windows will go in, but the building will remain largely the same.

Permits indicate a $52,800 remodel will transform the building. Work already started.

The store at 1575 S. Orchard first opened in 2002 as Albertsons Express. The grocery chain later sold its local convenience stores to Stinker. The site previously held a small bank branch — and before that… another gas station.
