Golden Gate Petroleum recently opened its second Grand Valley gas station and its second station in Colorado.

The station opened May 30 at the southwest corner of 24 and G roads. The gas pumps and convenience store are open 24 hours per day, seven days per week, according to Assistant Manager Chris Kuta.

The store includes a deli in addition to standard convenience items and can serve as a grab-and-go lunch location. There is also a "beer cave" that includes a walk-in refrigerator. It sells some Colorado-based beers. There will also be fruit stands at the corner of 24 and G roads.

The store carries some local products such as jam from Palisade's Alida's Fruits. The gas station includes diesel pumps and an RV dump. It will soon advertise with signs along Interstate 70. It has roughly 15 employees at the new location.

The first Golden Gate gas station and store in Colorado opened in the spring of 2018 in Palisade, just off I-70 near exit 42.

Golden Gate Petroleum is a family owned business based in Reno, Nevada. It has more than 20 stores in Nevada and California and owns a fuel terminal in Fruita.
