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 and run by an 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. Sometime afterwards their ghosts began haunting their store (and punishing teenagers who entered) which quickly led to its closure.
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," in which Stan Pines was attempting to buy a loaf of bread. While there, Stan was inspired to turn his brother's home into a tourist attraction - The Mystery Shack.

- Oddly, even though years had passed since the store was abandoned, and the ice freezer wasn't on, in the present, the ice was still perfectly frozen, though this could be just another occurrence caused by the ghosts of Ma and Pa Duskerton.
