comment Avoiding Duplicate Content Penalties on a Corporate/Franchise website
I think it solves all issues EXCEPT if the user blocks cookies. If that's the case, I need some kind of backup plan. The only other worry I have is how does google see the pages with each store's address. If someone does a geo location specific search on CityC, in which there is a store in CityC, but google only sees acme.com which is in CityA, they'd lose out on a higher ranking for that specific store in that specific city, right?

That, at least initially, seems to be a pretty attractive solution. acme.com itself represents the company as a whole and gives all relevant information on the company, products, events, etc. It does not offer products (it is a service company) but will simply point the user to the store locator on the site. At that point, it can set that cookie and then make the user appear to be on the franchise store site where they can browse the staff members, social media links, etc, but more importantly, the contact information of that particular store.
