This won't be difficult.  For anonymous users (including search engines) you 
wont know a location, so you can simply allow them to see all locations.

For other users, you can create a permission 'access all locations', then use 
user_access() to test that permission before rewriting the query.

RTFM and experiment.  It should not be too difficult.
