Three newly reopened gas stations/convenience stores will have grand opening ceremonies in Davenport on Saturday, June 1.

They will be held from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday at the Gas Spot locations at 1136 E. Locust St., 303 W. Locust St., and 3624 W. Locust St.

The celebrations at each location will include raffle drawings, energy drink tastings, branded giveaways and remote radio station broadcasts.

The Gas Spot locations have been open in Davenport since early February, and these events are a chance for the community to meet the staff, win prizes, and enjoy breakfast and lunch deals all week long. The radio stations 97X, B100 and IRock93.5 will be on site doing a live broadcast and raffling off various event tickets. Red Bull Energy Drinks will be visiting each store offering tastings of their new summer edition flavors, Curuba and Sea Blue. 

“These stores are alive again and thriving,” said Tiffany Fraley, CEO for InConvenience, the company that owns the local stations. “We’re proud to be a part of these Davenport communities.” 

The Gas Spots are part of ICC Motor Fuel I LLC, and were closed in September of 2023 to make way for new management and site upgrades. InConvenience Inc. reopened these stores after repairing equipment, cleaning stores, hiring staff and stocking with new inventory in early 2024. These sites also underwent rounds of testing and certifications with the Iowa DNR to ensure safety and compliance for the underground gas tanks.

 “Our company employees will be on site at the various locations on Saturday, and we’re ready for feedback and insights from the community,” said Ms. Fraley. “We’re ready to hear about anything we can do to make our stores an enjoyable part of your daily lives.” 

InConvenience Inc is a women-led company focusing on providing convenience to customers, opportunities for employees, and support to communities through innovative approaches and unwavering convictions, all while maintaining a sense of humor and humility.
