I would use App Ops that are baked into some ROMs (if using custom ROM with this addition) or Play Store the App Ops to see if, by using root, you can access this feature to restrict the Location for the wallet app.
From the depths, the light is all you see.... Life's Good in QHD.

Don't Forget to Hit the THANKS if I Helped!

Just looked it up and it's not Google Wallet itself that is causing the issue, rather over all location services. You'll probably want to read a bit on this thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...php?p=48051661

I have the same problem and it turns out because Google Wallet have "Offers", which always use Location Services (GPS, Wifi, etc.) to find the "relevant" offers (discounts, etc.) in your area.

I use Google Wallet for payment, but I do NOT need the "Offers" feature. In prior version of Google Wallet, I believe the "Offers" feature is disabled. However, now it is FORCED upon you. I don't see any settings in the Google Wallet app to disable "Offers". Anyone know?

And just turn off location to everything you don't want having the access. It's a great battery saver too!

I have used AppsOps to turn off Location Reporting for Google Wallet, but it seems something is still running that cause Google Wallet to keep causing this issue.

On a sidenote, I froze Google+. It still show up in App Ops for some reason and I see under "Location", it said it was last accessed 4 days ago. Thing is, Google+ is frozen and I got th ephone 2 weeks ago. So something is still running even if the app is in this state. I ended up uninstallign Google+

So I don't know if Google Wallet have the same thing...
