Do "near me" keywords trigger ads in local pack?

Has anyone had experience using "service/brand + near me" keywords in campaigns with city/zip location targeting? I'd like to know if these keywords have the ability to trigger ads in the local pack! 

 

Thanks in advance for any input,

"Near me" in a query is interpreted  by the system as a location by intent and matched with  the location targeting setting in your campaign. So no need to include it in a keyword.
