How do I switch from a Service page to a Brand page after the Service page has been verified?

A Google Business page was created for the headquarters of Sterling Payment Technologies incorrectly as a Service page and has been verified. As I was unable to remove that listing I created a separate Brand page. How do I remove the old, incorrect Service page without showing that our business has closed? (Correct G+ URL: https://plus.google.com/b/113227970468292142707/113227970468292142707/posts) (Incorrect G+ URL: https://plus.google.com/b/109299536946222721459/109299536946222721459/posts)

Hi Bob,

Well I don't have a clear solution for you but I hope my post can guide you to the answer you're looking for.

First check this short article http://www.joyannehawkins.com/the-proper-way-to-deal-with-duplicates-in-google-my-business/
If you see the second case fits to your story check if you can find unneeded brand page in Map Maker. Go to https://www.google.pl/mapmaker and start searching with "Sterling payment technologies, "

There are plenty of locations for this query hover maybe you'll be able to precise it and find that what you want to delete.

Hi Bo B In this case you'll need to contact GMB support directly via one of the following options and ask them to remove the GMB page completely from the Local database:
