Stinker Stores is an iconic Idaho company that has been in business for 70 years. The chain's regionally famous skunk logo and humorous billboards are omnipresent in its markets. The mascot, Polecat Pete, is promoted through the company's website and with social-media networking and marketing.
In 2017, Stinker grew through acquisition, stretching its reach beyond Idaho. In February 2017, the chain acquired Bradley Petroleum Inc. and Sav-O-Mat Inc., adding 40 convenience stores in Colorado and one in Wyoming.
