Google Now Displays Only 3 Local Results

I have some rather unfortunate news to report guys. Google has changed their search layout once more – getting rid of the seven local results they used to show for appropriate queries and displaying only 3 local listings now. I first noticed this around August 6th/7th, and Barry Schwartz over at SearchEngine Roundtable reported on it around August 7th – however I wanted to give it a few days and see if Google sticks with the change or reverses it. Unfortunately, it seems Google is sticking with the new 3-pack – making local SEO that much harder. I tried out a few different searches, and below are some screenshots of the new 3-pack local listing display:

What do you think about the new change? Has it affected your business? At least the results are above the fold still eh?
