How do i completely delete a business that is marked on Google Maps as permanently closed
I would like to permanently delete a business name from Google Maps, Cleveland Wholesale Stationers, Brenda Road, Hartlepool, TS25 1QE, tel 01429 268257 and which is featured on Google Maps as permanently closed. The Google + page has already been deleted.
The reason for this is that we changed the business name to Cleveland Wholesale, same address, same telephone number, same postcode and opened up a new Google + page. I obviously want to keep the new Google + page & Google Maps content for Cleveland Wholesale, but delete the old name, Cleveland Wholesale Stationers from Google Maps as it is confusing for customers and also classed as duplicate content.
Thanks in advance for any help or advice
