Two google+ business accounts

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

We have a Google+ Page for business and recently we have filled the address of that business from the  google search results suggestion via the "Own this business?" button. As a result of that we now have two Google+ pages for the same business. However when I go to Google My Business one of them is positioned under the tap "Location" and the other under the tab "Brand Pages". However this is confusing for people on Google+ as they see two different pages for the same brand. We have looked to add the address to the Brand Page so we can delete the newly created Location page but it doesn't allow that. I looks like there isn't a merge option either.

Yes, but if I delete the brand page in the location tab the business won't be available on google maps. Currently I don't see an option to add the address to the other brand page.

Thank, Helmut.

I found information that I can link the location to a different page which is the case with me.
Here is a link to an article about that if anyone else needs it: https://www.hallaminternet.com/merge-google-brand-page-google-local-page/

I wasn't aware you are about connecting a brand page to GMaps (aka "Connect
a Google+ page to your Google My Business listing")
Google HC describe it too:
