A Marathon station showed up in a state search for only Beacon & Bridge Market stations in MI at detroitgasprices.com. Why is it in the list and why is the link to what should be the station detail page a link to the company site as shown
here?

I'd say it's possible that some back-end brand settings with OpenStore were associated to SM_ID 111733 but reverted shortly afterward. Most of this kind of matching is done automatically, but there are a few stations that slip through the cracks that need to be manually reviewed and matched accordingly.

This appears to have been corrected.

SM & EZ: You really must keep up with what is going on in other topics.

Whatever the cause, I no longer find the problem occurring, so someone has dealt with it and I consider the matter resolved.

And I would be more concerned about the way this station was updated the last time. The cross street is no according to the site standards. But it's the Detroit members issue, not mine.

It's that time of month again, time to create a problem and a "wiki" link! ;)

I just did a search at detroitgasprices.com with the same criteria, CampKohler and all I got was Beacon & Bridge Market stations. And you live in Sacramento so what are you doing in Detroit worrying about their site>

I looked at the MSL on 4/29 and the revision history for that station shows that it was updated on 4/29 by GB_Direct, but the name doesn't seem to have been changed from Beacon & Bridge Market.

The link to the station detail seems to be working ok now. One possibility is that someone edited the MSL, put a URL to Marathon in where the station name should be. Then they reverted to a previous version to fix their mistake.

Or a temporary overload of gamma rays from space...
