    I have a directory with two neighboring towns. They are technically different cities, however they are such small towns that people really treat them as the same town.

    I know that I can merge the two towns with the multi-locations add-on, however if I do that, all of the addresses show up as the primary city, which is misleading. For example, if I merge Coos Bay into North Bend, the address for a location in Coos Bay will show up with North Bend as the city, which is technically incorrect and will cause some confusion.

    On the other hand, if I don’t merge the cities, when a person changes their location to Coos Bay, they don’t get to see the listings for North Bend. And if they change their location to Coos Bay, they don’t get to see the listings for North Bend. This is something of a bummer, because the towns are so close.

    Is there a way to show the two neighboring cities as the same location, BUT still have the listing shows its actual city?
