Unable to correct address on my verified business

I have a verified business that is showing an incorrect address.  My business is Patton Photography and is located at 196 Marquis Grove SE in Calgary.  Google continually changes the address in Google maps and Google+ to Marquis Common or Marquis Cove.   I have changed the address several times, submitted edits but it keeps changing back.  I am wondering if I need to bump the location marker over a little so it is on the road rather than the building?  How do I fix this?  Any help is appreciated.

The streets in this neighborhood seem to be completely mapped wrong. I'm working on it. In the meantime @David P can you please correct your business name to remove all the keywords?

@David P Okay it should be fixed now. I wanted to also tell you though that since you're a photographer, you should actually have your address on your listing hidden (you can do this inside the Google My Business dashboard) unless you actually have clients come to your home to do photo shoots.

Hi Joy, I too have this problem. We are based in Auckland, New Zealand. The "Located In" for Havana House Auckland shows as "Downtown Shopping Centre" which was demolished in May 2016 - Downtown Shopping Centre also shows on Google Maps as permanently closed. We have since been located at 59 High Street, and have no way to access the "Located in" feature of our Maps listing, and have been trying to correct this for 6 months now! Would love some assistance please!

 

Regards,

 

Josh

Dear Joy, 

Our company Zevenbergen Zonne-energie (Halteweg 13, Aalten, Holland) is registered OK on 'Google my company'. But if you search for us, Google lately changed the street name from Halteweg into Brassendijk. So people can not find us. Somehow the street names are mixed up. Please change this again. Margreet V.

Dear Joy, we have the same problem. Our company Zevenbergen Zonne-energie, is located on the Halteweg 13, Aalten, Holland. This was OK when you searched for us on Google. Lately the streets names are mixed up by Google, because now Google places us on the Brassendijk, this is in the neighbourhood. We notice that people can not find us. Please change this again into the Halteweg.
