The location searches - that's always been that way. My event sites get tons of UK traffic during various times of the year because Michigan has a lot of cities with the same name - Manchester, Birmingham, etc. This has happened every year since there was a Google. (And my domain actually has the word "Michigan" in it) That's not new. I also don't know that I'd expect Google to be able to tell a part number from a zip code, specially when the product name is the same as a city name. It ain't that smart.
