    Do you mean having similar pages for each location? If so then you are doing it wrong. Each location should have it's own unique content.

    its also better to have fresh content in every web pages though you have multiple similar pages. Google (search engine) always take a great concern to provide the user better quality information.

    For multi-location business, you need to use the unique, fresh and quality contents for your websites. This looks amazing and people love to use your website. :p:D

    Because they are all for the same business, they will have some of the same information, but you can phrase the information a different way, and perhaps include information specific to each location. If they are so similar that they have no different information to add, perhaps you should ask yourself why they need an entire separate website, or website page. Perhaps you can simply have a page that identifies the addresses of the different locations. Some larger companies even have a "find a store" feature on ther homepage.

    If you can't write unique content for each page, you can put canonical tags to other pages that has similar content to the main one.

    You can refer to solution to the problem of duplicate content.
    1. 301 Redirects
    In many cases, the best way to prevent duplicate content is from page 301 to page copy of the original content. 301 redirects you can use .htaccess to perform, or if you're using WordPress, many plugins available to support this work, typical SEO plugin support - WordPress SEO by Yoast has always functions.

    2. Use the rel = "canonical"
    Google canonical tag was introduced in 2009 as a solution to help determine the content of the original link, to avoid duplication as well as duplicate content. This card is placed in the head section of the site.
    In the original href exactly you put links to articles, and when Google or any other search engine, see this link tags, it will transfer the collected different URL of this page in the original URL.
