How do I make that apparent on my listing? I don't have hours listed but have put "Open by appointment only" in my store description.

Hi Guy,
There is no way to make that apparent, if you have a web site you should make that visible there.
The Description section of the Google+ Page was the place to do it, but in the new Google+ format that information is no longer visible and who knows how much longer we will have Google+ pages.

This is a real problem and can lead to many angry customers. When will this be corrected??

We have no idea if Google would implement a more business friendly setup for businesses that operate by appointment only.

Yes - Please implement an Hours option for "By appointment Only" I have listed our busienss as a service area and indicated that we don't accept customers at our location. Since we are often out on service calls, we are not at our location anyway and the hours are misleading.

There are two instances where customers could be confused. I'm a travel writer and you don't have a category for writer, freelance writer or travel writer and I don't have "hours." I travel to businesses and destinations. Potential clients can call me during specified times but I prefer they contact me via my website or email. Can I leave the hours blank? How do I deal with these issues? Thanks,
