I need to echo the string of a select dropdown. I keep getting the value echoed. For instance I'd like my string Santa Barbara, yada yada" echoed instead of santabarbara. I don't know what I need to change get_value() to, if that's even what I'm to change.  Thanks for any help, ya'll!

Here's my code:

//* Add select field to the checkout page
add_action('woocommerce_before_order_notes', 'wps_add_select_checkout_field');
function wps_add_select_checkout_field( $checkout ) {

	echo '<h2>'.__('Choose your Pickup Location').'</h2>';

	woocommerce_form_field( 'location', array(
	    'type'          => 'select',
	    'class'         => array( 'wps-drop' ),
	    'label'         => __( 'Delivery options' ),
	    'options'       => array(
	    	'blank'		=> __( 'Select Pickup Location', 'wps' ),
	        'santabarbara'	=> __( 'Santa Barbara, 33 W Parker Way', 'wps' ),
	        'montecito'	=> __( 'Montecito, 1187 Coast Village Road', 'wps' ),
	        'carpinteria' 	=> __( 'Carpinteria, 4185 Carpinteria Ave', 'wps' )

	$checkout->get_value( 'location' ));


//* Process the checkout
 add_action('woocommerce_checkout_process', 'wps_select_checkout_field_process');
 function wps_select_checkout_field_process() {
    global $woocommerce;

    // Check if set, if its not set add an error.
    if ($_POST['location'] == "blank")
     wc_add_notice( '<strong>Please select a Pickup Location under Delivery options</strong>', 'error' );


//* Update the order meta with field value
 add_action('woocommerce_checkout_update_order_meta', 'wps_select_checkout_field_update_order_meta');
 function wps_select_checkout_field_update_order_meta( $order_id ) {

   if ($_POST['location']) update_post_meta( $order_id, 'location', esc_attr($_POST['location']));


//* Display field value on the order edition page
add_action( 'woocommerce_admin_order_data_after_billing_address', 'wps_select_checkout_field_display_admin_order_meta', 10, 1 );
function wps_select_checkout_field_display_admin_order_meta($order){

	echo '<p><strong>'.__('Pickup Location').':</strong> ' . get_post_meta( $order->id, 'location', true ) . '</p>';


//* Add selection field value to emails
add_filter('woocommerce_email_order_meta_keys', 'wps_select_order_meta_keys');
function wps_select_order_meta_keys( $keys ) {

	$keys['Pickup Location:'] = 'location';
	return $keys;
