Remove Business from Google Places and Google Maps

Hi there, 


My business:


I previously operated two restaurants, one in Harrogate and one in York (both UK). We had both Google Places and Google Maps listings for these restaurants. I have, however, closed both restaurants and pivoted the business model to the point where I now operate the business focusing solely on retail products. 


We are using the same brand name "The Yorkshire Meatball Co." so I am having an issue in that when customers for our retail business search for our brand they are getting listings for the restaurants, showing as permanently closed. Not only does this distort search results, it is also harming the brand. 


How can I remove the Google Places and Google Maps results?

@Gareth A


as far as I know you can't remove any local listing from Google

You can instead mark it as closed.
