NEW HYDE PARK, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Kimco Realty Corp. (NYSE: KIM), the nation’s largest publicly-traded owner and operator of neighborhood and community shopping centers, today announced the opening of a Tesla Motors Inc. (NYSE: TSLA) Supercharger station at Kimco’s Gateway at Donner Pass shopping center in Truckee, Calif.
“This new highly-anticipated Supercharger site allows customers to charge their vehicle as they shop and dine at our center,” said David Jamieson, vice president of leasing and asset management at Kimco. “We consistently evaluate new opportunities to enhance the shopping experience for our customers and providing charging stations for Tesla owners seemed like the next smart choice.”
