I would segment with firewalls / routers so that you'd have L3 out to the locations instead of terminating in the HQ. This opens up for more flexibility (and less STP).

You don't need to necessarily buy FWSM modules and chassis for the remote locations. You could also look at getting 5540's or 5550's.
