This is very useful and is very relevant, at least around my area. You can now find stores/services in your area with contact info.

"In beta testing, Google Local lets users find shops and information that's right around the corner. Previously, a general Web search for "pizza" might return unwanted results, such as sites documenting the history of the food or links to far-flung restaurants.

The more focused results appear at the top-left of the search page, separated from regular findings and sporting a compass icon. Under a title, "Local Results for (your search term) at (your city, state and zip code)," several stores will be linked, along with driving directions and a phone number. Searchers can also specify the radius of the local search, from one to 45 miles."
