    Friend of mine just sent me a picture from the Meijer parking lot in a shipping center off I-75 in Lexington Ky called Hamburg place. There are already the stalls up at this site and it's not even listed on supercharge.info. Looks ready to open. It's across from the Lazyboy store, backyard burgers and a unique good restaurant named Saul Good. The stealth rollout continues.

    Holy s?&$! I just ate dinner at the red lobster in front of that Meijers not 2 months ago during my road trip. I bet they work working on it when I was there. If only I had known. I have family that is frequently in Hamburg. I'll see if I can get them to send me some pics.

    Updates?

    Anything new on this? I'm driving up to Columbus next month and it would be awesome if the SC was in place by then.

    I've taken 5 trips from Atlanta to Detroit and back over the last 19 months. Now instead of a two day trip, I can make this a one day trip if I want. I need to see picture though. Post some pictures.

    I drove by Hamburg this morning. Indeed, there is an 8-bay supercharger almost completed on the south side of Meijer :) Steak & Shake, Saul Good, and Fazoli's are all very close by. We didn't even know it was there yet!

    There are several Meijer stores near both Louisville and Cincinnati. If you live in the area, it might be worth a peek to see if any of them are getting superchargers, too.

    I shop at the Meijer in Florence, KY (which someone brought up as a possible location) on a weekly basis. Yall will know immediately if I see any activity at all.

    I don't own a Tesla but was very excited to see this supercharger being installed. It's only 2 miles away from my house! Anybody know when it will open or if there will be a grand opening ceremony? Now to find a good deal on a used Model S...

    We ate dinner in Hamburg tonight and there were guys working on the Supercharger (at 8:45pm!), so we asked when it will be open. The guy we talked to said that Tesla was coming to check it tomorrow morning and that it should be operational by lunchtime. :biggrin:

    This is the first time I've seen what appears to be a gray plastic shroud on the fan outlet (inlet?) of the white Supercharger cabinets. They previously had much larger white sheet metal shrouds.

    Finding a diamond in the rough that no has heard about is becoming more and more unique.
    There are a lot of ears and eyes looking for permits and beginning construction (digging), while you found a virtually completed (and now active) Supercharger location.
    Congratulations: Great Find!!!

    Gray... and round.
    London, KY has (1) old and (2) new shrouds:
