I am trying to get a clean look yet not give up detail when displaying quite a bit of addresses.

Here is the current method using toggling:

But from a user looking at this, they can't tell which center or location they are looking for. Thus it is quite hard to find the place they want.

I am open to any ways to display this info that is straight forward yet not crowded.

    You will have to explain what the user is looking for, and why they would be viewing this list. Without that information it's not clear what your question is. – Alan Gilbertson Jun 6 '14 at 5:03

I don't think displaying more information will make the process any easier. Quite the contrary, you will have an overcrowded screen where locations are still difficult to find.

I would instead consider a more straightforward way of filtering locations. It could be an input field where the user can write a location and it filters the results live... or a map... or since you have all that empty space on the right you could have the location there (street name? town? depends):

I'd definitely NOT show the expander for all the results. I would try to add functionality to facilitate some sort of search.

A user can either look for a location close to their home, in that case they could do a search for postcode (most people know their own postcode). If they are looking for a location on some other area, they can instead input an address, or a neighborhood. Or if this is mobile, you can even pull a GPS location (dreaming here) and show the distance to the nearest centers ;)

  • Thanks for the suggestions, some good ideas I guess. I will see what I can do with that – vico Jun 6 '14 at 12:50
  • That's a lot more than you had when you came here... – KMSTR Jun 6 '14 at 14:27

@Yisela has some very good points, but if you have to keep categories, the very least would be to split them in multiple pages, so the user first selects the category and than is presented with a list within a particular category.

This way the total number of addresses per page is significantly reduced.
