Stores that accept Bitcoin

First off I want to say that I believe blockchain and have a little Bitcoin and see it’s potential going forward. I want/need it to do well. Also, these are just my opinions and I can be wrong. In fact, I want to be wrong.
It feels like the main problem for bitcoin adoption is that besides for a handful of widely known businesses, like overstock, there’s not a good place to find where to spend the coins. From what I see when I look it up are mostly bitcoin ATMs. I know there’s a few sites that have a list of stores but it feels very incomplete.
I have a service business in Los Angeles and I’m trying to accept Bitcoin. On yelp, I’ve turned the toggle on for accepting Cryptocurrency and I’m running an add in google promoting that we accept bitcoin. For Yelp, if I search for businesses that accept crypto or bitcoin, my business doesn’t come up. How many other businesses are like this? I’ve tried uploading my business to a few sites but after I submit, I don’t see the business.
There needs to be an app or some way that I find all places that accept. Right now, from my experience as both merchant and consumer, it feels like a mess. I had an Airbitz wallet some time ago and if I remember correctly they had a few places but I’ve yet to see a comprehensive place that lists every place that accepts crypto for goods and services.
The other day, I wanted to buy an entry level Cartier watch for my wife and looked for a place to use Bitcoin. It’s LA. I feel like a jewelry store, bare minimum, would be easy. Searches sent me to just a few big chains outside of LA but didn’t have what I was looking for and it was very clunky. Overstock had it but it was $600 more than going to the store so I didn’t do that.
Someone needs to develop an all encompassing app that will allow me to find where to spend my coins. I’d love to be a thought partner or help finance something like this but would really just settle on an already finished product where I open it when I want to go shopping, get my floors cleaned, or go to a bar, etc.
This “issue” doesn’t seem to me to help bring in new people to crypto. Are most just using Bitcoin to invest because they heard it on the news with no real interest in buying something? Even if that’s so, if there is that all encompassing app I mentioned, they’d be able to spend their gains on goods and services besides paying an atm or broker 5 to 10% for getting their money out.
