OK.. I have a variable called @Location.. The data in it is this: 500 Main St Greensboro NC 27401..

I have the following variables called @City, @State and @Zip.. Each of them has already been populated with the information above.. For example @City is populated with Greensboro and @State is populated with NC etc... I was able to populate the three variables from @Location.. However now I need to strip out the City, State and Zip from @Location so all I have left in @Location is 500 Main St...What is the best way?

something like:
set @location = replace(@location, @city, '')
set @location = replace(@location, @Zip, '')
set @location = replace(@location, @State, '')

You may want to rtrim angelIII's solution to remove unnecessary spaces at the end.
set @location = rtrim(@location)
