Multiple business from same address

Hi, I registered a business a long time ago on GMB but never really used it much. I've now started a second business which I want to make public but can't seem to get a clear understanding of best practices and what to do.


I've just registered my second cables business and awaiting to verify the location (waiting for the Google postcard), but for the time being, I'm having an error appear as I have the same address used for two different businesses / locations. From what I can gather, as far as Google concerned, you have a location defined for each business, and so location = business. But in my case, I have just one location for several businesses so this comes up as a duplicate conflict.


What is the best way of managing this? Should I put the business name as part of the address? This might then confuse the mapping stuff as the "address" includes the "business name" which isn't really part of the address.


Also, what's the best way of managing the pins on the map if they appear on top of each other?
