Name: Selected Tutorial Centre.

Address: 1-3 Hudson Street, Hurstville NSW Australia 2220

Phone: +61 2 9585 1866

Website: hurstvillestc.com

 

The problem is below:

 

We have our main centre and also a little bookshop next to it, and they are on the same address. We want to also show both of them on Google Map as seperate business, is that possible?

Do they have separate mailboxes and company names? In the United States, you have to be able to get the verification card at the other valid address. The way your google my business page is listed would also conflict with what you want to do. Is there a separate entrance?

No they don't have seperate mailboxes, although they have seperate business names. They do have seperate entrances, but need to go through a main entrance first where they share that mailbox.

 

The reason why I set the name as "Selected Tutorial Centre & Bookshop" is just for a temporary solution so that people can search our bookshop on Google. If I can get them as seperate businesses then I will change the name back to "Selected Tutorial Centre"

I would work to set up the separate mailbox set them up as separate entities completely. A separate website, separate name and phone number and then get the bookstore verified as a stand-alone business. Or if not optimize your content on the website so the book information will show up in the search results. You can also wait to see if anyone else comments here in the community with another suggestion.

Thank you so much for your solution. I will try to set up a seperate mailbox and other things first, if not I will just include the details of the shop into the tutoring centre's website.

You are welcome. If you can not go the seperate address route for your website content you may want to visit this link. There are a number of very informed people posting there and some are top contributors to this community. Local SEO articles and take a look at the article titled
