Car Charger Station
The electric charging station at Whole Foods Stefan Jeremiah
Only in Park Slope, kids.
Actress Maggie Gyllenhaal and the rest of the crowd with First World problems in the trendy neighborhood are incensed that they haven’t been able to charge their electric cars at the local Whole Foods.
“Dear @wholefoods in Brooklyn. this has been broken for 2 months. BeenTrying2charge my #ChevyVolt Ps Peter says the other 1 is broken now 2, ” Gyllenhaal tweeted a few weeks ago, referring to actor hubby Peter Sarsgaard.
A rep for the upscale grocer said both stations at the Gowanus store have been fixed.
But workers Tuesday reported that only one charger was pumping juice, because getting replacement parts for the twin GE WattStation chargers is tough.
“It’s not an easy fix, ” one employee said.
“The other charging station is still down… is there a manager in this place that would fix that charger. Been like it for months, ” one user wrote in September.
It shouldn’t take an A-lister’s outrage to get the stations fixed, said one shopper.
“It is annoying that these are broken. Especially when you come spend your paycheck here, ” sniffed Angel Jimenez, 31. “Come on guys.”
An actress complaining to a high-end grocer that an electric car-charging station is broken encapsulates Park Slope’s reputation as a bastion of the well-heeled left — and shows that influence seeping into up-and-coming Gowanus where the Whole Foods opened in 2013.
“This neighborhood had changed a lot, ” a firefighter shopping with fellow Bravest told The Post. “Things like Whole Foods have definitely brought more life to the neighborhood.”
Another example: A Park Slope store where customers can pay to dress up like a unicorn, was born in a Gowanus art studio.
Gyllenhaal is also a member of the Park Slope Food Coop, but has been on probation at the store, which requires shoppers work shifts there in exchange for discounts, she revealed on Twitter earlier this month.creative zucchini recipes creative jewelers creativity as a strength creative pumpkin carving ideas without creation synonyms creative assembly creation kit fallout 4 creation groans under the weight of sin creation up synonym creative of garforth creativity by design through creative writing after creation god pronounced the universe creativity requires thinking outside the box creative to do list ideas creation units creation of elements inside a star is called creation about butterfly creation museum kentucky creativity ken robinson what's another word for creativity creativity with color creation and earth history museum creativity with mrs b creation worships god creative one creativity of linguistic knowledge creative outdoor christmas light ideas creative like us creation and destruction creativity lab creativity science creative on main street creative commons creative like synonyms relationship between creativity and innovation creative during lockdown creativity thesaurus kreation juice creation rebirth creativity beyond the myth of genius pdf creation through destruction creative wellness what was creation like in the beginning decision makers that rely on creativity and imagination are creation as science creative roots coconut water creative districts around the world creative difference between artistic creation yogurt but creation compte creativity pro color pink creation of opposite creativity among poor child is always bcreative digital media creative versa tool creativity xl pouch kipling creativity coach near me creative playthings creation entertainment tvd dimple creation near me creation crafts creation x570 creation restaurant creation through my eyes creativity through art creative of entrepreneurship
