Google search points to competitor's website

I did a simple website for a local business and it's listed correctly in Google Local except the website link points to the wrong website. The correct website is www.appliancewarehouseinc.com but the link points to https://www.appliancewhse.com/ which is a business that has the same name but is in another state. I've suggested edits several times but it's been about six weeks since I verified the account and I've been unsuccessful in getting it changed to the correct URL. Is there something more I can do?

 

The business name is Appliance Warehouse Inc. at 6122 W 55th Ave Arvada CO 80002; telephone number 303-431-2887. The search link is https://www.google.com/maps/place/Appliance+Warehouse/@39.7958014,-105.0647288,15z/data=!4m5!3m4!1s0...

Sorry @N Shannon W

 

but neither the GMaps link provided by you nor any result we get on a search for "Appliance Warehouse Inc. 6122 W 55th Ave Arvada CO" is a  veryfied local listing.

Ther owner of the bsuiness should use your GMaps link and claim and verify it.

Once this is done he can change the website.

 

Anyone (even me) could also do a community edit to suggest any other website as the actual site shown up or linked with - being https://www.appliancewhse.com/

 

I would have done this but I'm not sure you are familiar enough with the needs of the business owner of the unverified listing in question.

Thank you Helmut, I did this several weeks ago and the postcard arrived at the business. When I verified it it created a new Google+ page for the business on my Google account and then Google said it could not be verified because of multiple Google+ accounts for the same business. So I deleted one of them and that's where I am today. Do I need to request a new postcard and do it again?  (I've done the community edit numerous times...) -Neil
