Other meaning of Quedar?

Is it correct that "quedar" can also mean "to be (located)"?

E.g.  In a supermarket you might ask "¿Dónde quedan los cereales?"

This question relates to:

Hola Alan

It is not very common, but you could use quedar as well in that context.

However it would be more used to ask about where a street, a station, a hospital is, and we'd probably add "por". For example:

"¿Por dónde queda la estación?" (Whereabouts is the station?)
