The Dusk 2 Dawn is an abandoned convenience store in Gravity Falls, Oregon. It was the property of Ma and Pa Duskerton before they died, and closed down soon after their deaths. There were rumors that a double murder took place there, but it turns out that Ma and Pa both had heart attacks because of teenagers' hateful rap music and were in fact not murdered.
The store was owned by a elderly couple known as Ma and Pa Duskerton. The owners held a bitter rivalry with a local gang of teenagers who had made it their hobby to torment them, to the point that the owners banned them and other teenagers from the store.
In the year 1995 Ma and Pa, insulted by the teenager's disrespectful and hateful rap music, were stricken down with double heart attacks, although the sudden and apparently unexplained nature of their deaths led to rampant rumors that they had been murdered. Afterwards their ghosts began haunting their store which quickly led to the store to be closed.
In "The Inconveniencing," Dipper and Mabel Pines visit this convenience store with Wendy and her friends Robbie, Lee, Tambry, Nate, and Thompson to see what lurks inside the store and indulge in teenage mischief. It turns out that it is haunted by two ghosts named Ma and Pa Duskerton, who owned the store until they were struck down by double heart attacks after hearing "disrespectful music" played by a group of teenagers that they had banned from entering the store. They tell Dipper that they haunt this store because they hate teenagers. They only allow Dipper and the others to leave after Dipper does the "Lamby Lamby Dance." At the end of the episode, the lights in the store flicker off, suggesting that Ma and Pa are still haunting the store.
The store is seen in the flashback in "A Tale of Two Stans," which Stan Pines is buying a bread for food it is also the place where Stan had been inspired to turn his brothers home into a tourist attraction.

- Oddly, even though years had passed before the events of "The Inconveniencing" and the ice freezer wasn't on, in the present, the ice was perfectly frozen, though this could be just another occurrance caused by Ma and Pa Duskerton.
