Where's the third Supercharger? I wouldn't assume that they are putting a publicly accessible Supercharger at the Service Centre.

Why would they want to install superchargers for just the store/ service centre to use? Would the destination chargers be more appropriate?

They often need both. Because they run so many cars through the service centers, both repairs and deliveries, they need the ability to charge lots of cars fast.

True they could use a handful of SuperChargers for internal purposes, but these are often not the best sites for a regular, publicly accessible bank of SuperChargers - Lawrence Ave being a perfect example of that.

As sene with Oakville, Tesla is shifting away from the superchargers at store model. Although, it is a pretty big location they're taking over with a whole shopping complex, so you never know.

Maybe on the other side of the mall to avoid blocking the Supercharger

While I was charging last week two young ladies with a bunch of kids arrived with a Model X and proceeded to unload and park in a charging stall. After not plugging in, I told them that that was a charging spot and not a parking spot. The driver was annoyed at my comment and only when I mentioned I would call security, she reluctantly plugged in.

This was at the Supercharger or at the ChargePoint stall? because it seems to be happening on both stalls, even with Tesla owners blocking the ChargePoint chargers, not charging, even though there is a Supercharger on the other side of the mall. It’s probably just owners 1- too lazy to look for a parking space and 2- unwilling to walk a long time to get into the mall.

Yup, and sucks because those that actually need to charge will get dinged idol fees to be in a spot not charging, but if you are not plugged in at all = no fee. Not sure how to implement, but seems same idol fee should apply, plugged in or not.

Am at Vaughn Mills today, and was supercharging when 2 non tesla pulled over, one on each side and parked, with drivers still in the cars.
Called mall security and minutes later, security car came and ordered them to move.
I know I’m late for this post but this is the reason I stopped charging there. People parking their non EV’s and non Tesla EV’s in the charging spots. I was not aware mall security would actually do anything about it.

Wrong thread - the Vaughan SC is not open yet. The Vaughan Mills SC that you are mentioning is known as the Concord SC.

exactly, especially when many of their customers arrive from 100-200 kms away and need their vehicle charged to return home. Don't forget there are 14.6 million people in ontario and what...5 service centers, almost exclusively in the GTA?
