Hello,  I used to have a business called "The Floral Bouquet" it closed in February 2016.  The google presence is up in the search.  Recently it has come to my attention that people have been making false claims and reviews.  How do I have this page and content/ reviews "the floral bouquet" removed?

I look forward to hearing from you.

Hello @Craig R,

I see the listing is listed as Permanently Closed, unfortunately, Google will not remove a business listing from Maps simply because it is no longer in business. People are able to leave a review by going to the business listing on Maps.



You only have two options, one, claim the listing and respond to the reviews. Or two, leave it be.

you can't remove a listing

Can report is as closed and you can flag the bad reviews.

No other options exist.
