Anyone else seeing this, note on the left side the description is included in the listings. I also noted this was in the 3-pack as well.

I could not trigger this on a search in another city, only my own.

Hey Ben,
Can I ask - is that your description that you wrote in your GMB dash, or is that an aggregate description?
