    It's time to find this. Will it be at KoP mall? Need some more scouts because our states 811 Dig system is not friendly to searches *grr*

    Target Opening - End of 2017

    I haven't heard anything yet. I'm hoping it is not at the mall because any place in the mall parking lot is all but inaccessible on the weekends or near the holidays. Perhaps it will be in one of the shopping centers surrounding the mall - the one with the Best Buy comes to mind. It's easier to get to/from than the mall, and there are a few restaurants there.

    Seasons 52 or Crate and Barrel parking lots work for me. (speculation)

    Is there a Sheetz or Weis market around there? Both of those have sponsored Superchargers. Also didn't Ruby Tuesday sign an agreement for some kind of charging facilities?

    I think West Chester is a great Spot for the Super Chargers... Lots of restaurants and brewery's

    I'll be shocked if they don't put it in the mall, especially with the store in there. Rep told me (In 2015) that store in the KoP mall (Being right next to the Apple store) does the most "business" of any of their mall type locations.

    Rumor is at Wegmans, but I haven't had time to swing over there, so if anyone has any time to swing by or knows some people over there...

    I'll be by there Thursday and will do a drive-by. The area is MASSIVE though. LOTS and LOTS of traffic. Hopefully they put it as far away as possible from the stores. There is NO spot in that development that I see as not getting iced.

    I have not really driven by this area lately so am not familiar with it but what is the lot down at the bottom middle of this picture? It's isolated, near the power poles with a couple possible places for switch gear and superchargers...Not sure how much traffic it gets in a day to day basis though.

    I guess that lot's a possibility - just looks like a back lot behind Wegman's. Not sure if Tesla would go back there due to the distance to everything else, but I like it and certainly don't mind the walk! Much less chance of getting iced. I imagine it's mostly Wegman's employees that are going to park back there.

    I went around the Wegman's and surrounding lots - nothing. That back lot was actually closed. Looks like it was paved (re-paved?) within the last day or two. I'd be surprised if they're going to rip that up now, would have waited. Then again, no one talks so. . .

    Did not get a chance to go around to all of the mall lots and garages. Next time I'm out I'll see what I can find.

    Any mall location will get iced at Xmas, Wegmans is easy access from the turnpike with some good eats nearby! Red lobster KOP shares a back yard with a turn pike rest stop..
    Could get innovative there!

    I looked through several months of agendas and meeting minutes from the township for permits, etc. No mention of anything (yet.) So I don't think we'll see construction for awhile.
