On some sites like gamestop.com they allow you to give your zipcode and find a gamestop store closest to your zip. Circuitcity.com contains the ideal functionality im looking for in a system like this does anyone know how to do this or can provide a link to a how to type of thing so i can make one of my own.

I'd appreciate it

I think Google Maps is taking over this "find a location close to you" stuff. You can embed Google Maps into your site and add all sorts of custom markers with static locations or dynamic locations generated from user input and MySQL databases. You will have to know some JavaScript and there is a Google Maps API discussion group.
