My son lives near by and shops at HT often. He says SC is often packed. We went back later and only 4 slots open.

maybe they've gotten busier since I've had to commute near them for work daily but every time i'm in the app it doesn't seem that busy. When I have been there it's almost always a lot of model 3s charging which to me means one of a few things 1) they aren't local 2) they need a fast charge to head out of town 3) they don't have local charging as @magellen55 noted or 4) they just enjoy paying over 2x the local rate for kwh :)

the SC up north raleigh by target always used to be camped by free charging S and X but I dont' think that's nearly the issue it was anymore.......who knows though maybe i'm wrong.

Luckily NC is getting a lot of new SCs being built so it's only going to get better I think.

540 is pretty packed in the AM and the evenings or at least it was pre-covid and the location makes great sense for people commuting out of the triangle on 540 to holly springs and fuquay. Even off I-40 it's only about 4 or 5 miles so not insane. however, with the new mebane SC going in I can't see anybody passing along on I-40 needing it.
I was really hoping that Southpoint Mall would get a SC setup, that would have made a lot of sense (to me, anyway).

I hit up the Raleigh SC quite a few times in July/August and the availability was good (FWIW).

btw: shame on fellow Tesla owners that left Target and Harris Teater carts in back of two of the stations. An X backing in would hit both.

Pet peeve of mine about shopping carts in general. Could be worse though, i've seen bottles of urine at some. YUCK.
