This article from Jennifer Slegg of TheSEMPost is a bit misleading in it's title.

Simply titled "Best Practices for Adding a Store Locator to Your Site" you might be forgiven for thinking it only applies to large, multi-national / international companies but with gems like this:

Are your phone numbers in plain text? I went to a mobile site recently where the web designer had made the store contact information and the phone numbers in a fancy font? in an image. So while I was attempting to contact the location, I had to memorize the phone number to enter it so I could make the call? and not everyone?s memory is good enough to remember those 12+ digits without having to go back and forth at least a couple of times.

The other important thing is that plain text phone numbers are then clickable from a mobile phone, making it easy for potential customers to reach you.

there's plenty of helpful information in my opinion for the one or two location local business too.
