Removing Location and Business Page

Follower ✭ ☆ ☆

Hey all, I managed my uncle's business page.  He passed away from cancer.

 

I was able to close the business early this year but just noticed it still shows location.

 

When I follow the instructions, they say select the three dot menu and I should be able to remove from there. 

 

Problem is, there is no three dot menu...see image.  

 

How can I completely remove this page and it's location?

Thanks.

@vitamin

 

it seems you refer to this HC article.

This however referes to the List view of the dashboard.

Your screen capture shows the card view instead.

 

But let me warn you.

 

Removing a listing according  to this HC article will just remove it from your dashboard.

It will not remove it from Google - still showing it as permanently closed.

 

(the HC tells you "You’ll no longer manage the location, but it will still appear on Google.")

Thanks @Helmut Geissler,

 

So the question still remains then, how do I completely remove the listing?

 

This seems excruciatingly difficult.

My company is a charity that has received a one star review.  I clicked remove listing to get rid of a slanderous review and all it did was remove the pics, good content, and my control of the listing, now the only things there are the negative reviews.  Can anyone helpful chime in on how to remove a listing?  Any helpful information?  You can't legally go around slandering people online even if you a are behemoth corporation like google.

Our business locations would like to not have address listed for security reasons. We have people show up and threaten our employees from time to time. I too have found it seemingly impossible but thought I would ask again how might we petition Google to remove our physical addresses.
