Pi Day math Puzzle Geocaching

Dear Math is fun Team,
i have a pi puzzle  (actually a pie day puzzle)which i cant solve. I hope you can help me with this .
https://www.geocaching.com/geocache/GC721K1_dozens-of-pies

The Hint for this puzzle is
[Puzzle]: [ Put some dozen Pies in your shopping cart,
check them all out and you pay only the integer part of the total price.
Don`t forget counting your money before paying! ]
(check, integer, counting, failure)
At the Endresult must be some coordinates for example like this:
N 39° 52.935` E 116° 24.397`
Dozens of Pies is the headline. So i think it is about the digit pi.
The name pie is just a metaphor for pi.
Prize for one pie is pi
And you only count only integer number
So i started like this dozens of pi
x *12 * pi = 37.6991118431  (multiple of Pi * 12)
But the i dont now how to continue.

check them all out is the main key of the puzzle

The endresult must be some coordinates for example
N 39° 52.935' E 116° 24.397'
