Incorrect location for Wegman's in Northboro, MA

Bing returns this small residential cul-de-sac as the location for Wegman's supermarket in Northboro, MA:

https://www.waze.com/editor/?zoom=5&lat ... TTTTTTTTFT

I've closed dozens of UR's here as "not identified" for a lack of a better resolution. I just added the landmark (anti-landmark?) informing drivers that this is not Wegmans.

I'm not sure if drivers will necessarily appreciate my humor. Is there a better way of doing this?

Update: I went to bing.com --> maps, searched for Wegmans northboro ma, which finds the cul-de-sac. I hit "report a problem", then dragged the big blue dot over to where Wegman's is actually located. Now we wait and see if that's just a busybox solely designed to make me feel better. :-)
