    This is correct! Just went on the Tesla site to look at job openings and sure enough, there are openings for the Kenwood store. This along with the store at Easton Town Center here in Columbus will be the first two stores in Ohio. Also, service centers are being built in Cleveland and Cincinnati, to coincide with the recently built Dublin service center. Very exciting!

    This is great news!!! If you look on their job postings section, they are also looking to hire staff for a Cincinnati service center.

    FYI, I just heard that the Cincinnati service manager has been hired and is in training. We should have a service center here before too long!

    I also noticed that job listing in Cleveland. Do you know where in Cleveland it is being build (or where it will be built?)?

    I heard a rumor that Doug may be moving from the Dublin SC to run the new Cleveland location... Forget where I heard it, but I did :)

    I had to run to the Kenwood Microsoft store over lunch today, and could not help doing a little bit of Tesla snooping. Here are a few pictures of the work in progress. Enjoy!

    The store is on the far side of the mall, near Nordstrom. It's definitely not the highest traffic part of the mall. The storefront looks pretty small, typical of all of the newer Tesla stores.

    The only indication that this storefront will be Tesla was a small piece of paper taped to the door.

    In the parking garage on the Tesla side of the mall, I found these parking spots, all caution taped off. Looking at the conduit and wires overhead, it looks like some chargers may be installed soon.

    Here is a map of the upper level of the mall with the Tesla store pointed out.

    The store starts training staff on Monday. I will see what info I can share as I'm certain I am under some sort of NDA from them.

    Try the "Search for Jobs" button on their careers page. I don't see the Cincinnati store in the "Locations" list yet, but you could fill out a general application at the bottom of the page and perhaps add a comment that you're specifically interested in Cincinnati.

    It actually is on there, but it is listed as OH-Kenwood, not OH-Cincinnati. They currently have positions open for an Owner Advisor, and for a Product Specialist.

    Does anyone know if the Cincy store actually opened up today? I had heard the 13th mentioned as the grand opening date. If it is open, I will have to take the wife and kid there this weekend so she can finally see a Model S in person.

    I heard from another owner that the opening was delayed until at least Monday because they couldn't get the inspection done in time. I have not heard anything official however, so take that for what its worth.

    I'd still like to do a mini meet up if anyone wants to check out the store and do lunch or drinks or something. Let me know!

    It's delayed. Inspections not complete or something such.

    This is the last I heard from Craig:

    "They said they'd have an event and an email would go out to all area owners."

    Not sure what his TMC name is but He'll probably see this thread and maybe send a group PM, or I can after he lets me know.

    Anyone know if Tesla put in any HPWC's in a garage near the Tesla store in Cincinnati?

    Yes, 6 have been installed in the freestanding garage next to Nordstrom. I refer to this as the Apple entrance.

    Now if only the mall would put in a few J1772's for us Volt and Leaf drivers, and we would be all set :) It looks like Tesla just doubled the number of publically available chargers in our city overnight. If someone has the opportunity to confirm that these chargers are powered up and working, they should add them to plugshare so others know where to find them.
