My buddy just sent me this photo - we are getting superchargers at the Meier in Bolingbrook, IL!
Cool, looks pretty far along, paging @BlueShift.
Comparing the photo to Street View, location looks like 41.722189, -88.037278 on the north side of the parking lot. One exit worth of toll road for most straightforward access from I-55.
Fairly certain that Meijer is putting them in all of their parking lots. . . I haven't dug in but find it ironic since they are prolific primarily in the rust belt and based in Grand Rapids Mi.
Wonder if CEO has security. . . sleep with 1 eye open dude!
Right in the heart of ICE / UAW land.
It's not on supercharge.info yet.
That is near a large outdoor mall (Link: The Promenade Bolingbrook ).
I'm a reasonable distance from there and may be able to get some pictures occasionally.
Original picture and 3d view of nice sleuthing work above and lat/long.

Someone above pinged Blueshift above, and I see it's on there now.
I emailed them and they got back to me.
Funny, all the Meijer near me is getting is shut down.
Wow. Was over at the Promenade just last night. Didnt notice. This is a very nice spot. Lots of restaurants, Movie Theater (one of the high end bar/restaurant/theaters with super comfortable seating) shopping. Right off the I355 at the intersections with I55. I noticed last night as we had dinner that Volta has new free chargers just about done. Volta was a name I hadnt heard and then turns out SuperChargers across the street at Meijer. I wonder if any SuperChargers going up in Meijer's in Michigan we dont know about.
Not exactly Michigan but heading up that way (Upper Peninsula) a Meijer in the Green Bay area is finally getting Supercharged in the town of Howard.
Seems the Rolling Meadows, IL. Bolingbrook, IL. Green Bay, WI and Traverse City, MI all are in Meijer parking lots. Would love to see if the Meijer's near East Lansing, MI have SC going up soon.
I wonder if Meijer is the collaboration to replace the Ruby Tuesday one. I'm assuming the Ruby one is dead but could be completely wrong.
There's no "they" - it's just one dude - Blueshift.
Great photos Scott! This site looks really far along. The transformer already being in place is a great sign. This site could potentially be open in a week or two. #fingerscrossed
I am talking with the Bolingbrook village engineer and planning folks about a possible ribbon cutting. They are contacting their Tesla person. Will keep folks informed if you want to come.
I don't think the two are related. The Meijer partnership dates back over three years to the Maumee supercharger and numerous locations since then.
Also note that there is a Chicago Tesla meetup group -- MeetUp link Tesla Chicago
