Sites for physical stores across multiple States or Regions. For sites that have locations in a single State or Region, please suggest the site there.
If the site sells by distance ordering, has a single or no physical presence, includes prices, and delivers internationally or to most of the USA, it may be better suggested in the Shopping branch and possibly in the Regional/.../Locality of the premises (requires verifiable location details on the site).
