... another thought occurred to me. Google seems to have rolled out a "one - size fit's all " solution that provides for flawed logic.
In the real world there is a difference between the physical location and often the virtual service that supports it. And then there is the separation of delivery and the source of supply. Such is the bricks and mortar solution versus the online solution.
How can Google assume the same solution across all scenarios with the same place search? How can they be so sure of a users intent. Not everyone want's local for service , delivery or supply. Often in an international situation where , for example, pricing is greatly varied the last thing one wants is local. And that's just one aspect.
No doubt there are countless scenarios that webmasters and business' here are encountering that doesn't fit with those place search results.
