Holiday Station Stores

 

I'm going to work on geocoding these stores. Someone had asked for this POI and someone else was kind enough to put all the stores into an Excel spreadsheet and send it to me.

All Holiday Station stores.

Bill (from DC) supplied a spreadsheet containing all the store locations at www.holidaystationstores.com and I batch geocoded them to address accuracy. When batch geocoding failed, manual corrections were made using the map associated with the Store Locator.

Need help with the following stores which were not geocoded to address accuracy.

Beaver Bay, MN - city accuracy.
Billings, MT (Ember Lane) - city accuracy.
Chaska, MN (Chaska Blvd) - city accuracy.
Deep River, MN - city accuracy.
Dearwood, MN - city accuracy.
Dickerson, ND - "east" for street address?
Garrison, MN - city accuracy.
Haywood, WI (1st St) - city accuracy.
Maple Plain, MN - city accuracy.
McGregor, MN - city accuracy.
Navarre, MN (Shadywood Dr) - really in Wayzata?
Navarre, MN (Shorewood Dr) - really in Wayzata?
New Prague, MN - city accuracy.
Otsego, MN - city accuracy.
Plymouth, MN (County Rd) - road/city accuracy.
Sault Ste Marie, MI (I-175 spur) - road/city accuracy.
St. Bonifacius, MN - road/city accuracy.
Tofte, MN - road/city accuracy.
Wakefield, MI - city accuracy.
White Bear Lake, MN - city accuracy.

That was me that requested it. And being a dummy I didn't see a reply about it in the original thread I asked and then I started another thread just this morning. ACK...

Here is the correct placement for the Sault Ste Marie, MI store on the business spur...

I moved the marker at google maps to reflect the correct location. Since I had to move it so far it said the changes won't show up right away.

Thanks again.

1/15 Update

Thanks allisong6. Made update and uploaded file.

Along Route

Just got back from a 10 day trip through Holiday Stationstores country. It was great to be able to find them.

One problem, my TomTom xl would not find any Holdiday's when I searched by "along route!" It found them fine if I "searched nearby" or by city.

Any ideas?

Hope someone can help

allisong6, unfortunately, I don't live near any Holiday Station stores and don't have a Tom Tom. Hopefully, someone else can help.

I got it to work. What a long work around!

Open the ov2 file in poi edit
export to to csv
open in excel
replace "Holiday Station-cityname" with "_cityname"
save as csv
open in poiedit
save as ov2

I think this has fixed my problem of finding along a route. It must have something to do with the length of the field???

Anyone else with a tomtom want to try/confirm this? You can use the "prepare route" function in your tomtom to do this. You could try Ironwood, MI to Duluth, MN as an example. Does it find any Holidays "along route?"

I didn't know they were either, I haven't been back to Minnesota since 1982.

I built a home back in the 60's overlooking the Mississippi River for one of the Erickson Brothers. They owned Erickson Petroleum and they started the Holiday gas stations back then.

Checking on Max Name Length

Allisong6,

Great detective work. I've posted a max name length question here.
