How can I get my browser (Chrome) to know where I am?

When Walmart.com, accuweather, or anything else, comes up, it gives me information for town 30 miles away.  I then have to change stores or whatever for my actual location.  I think it is basing my location on where my ISP is, but that is not where I am.  Is there anyway to fix this?

 

Chrome 62

Windows 10

Alas, my system doesn't look like the "solution".  So no, it doesn't.

Hello,

I don't think you can fine tune to an exact location, but I'll investigate it a bit more. I'm curious what do other browsers do and how do they respond?

I tried Edge and IE and they give results identical to Chrome.
