guys - I like to set reminders like 'remind me when I'm near a brooks brothers to buy shirts', etc and I can't find an option in the reminders app to do that. How do I do that

Thx

I use this feature almost daily for reminders that will alert when I leave/arrive at my house or my work. It's very convenient.

I just use Siri though, "Remind me to get milk when I leave work this afternoon " generally does the trick.

For me, "leave work this afternoon" confuses Siri. I can either give a location or a time, not both.

If both are given, it ignores the location part and sets the reminder for the time, calling the reminder "Get milk when I leave work".
