I sell fireworks online and also do professional firework displays. I have an office but no shop.The only category available to my business is Firework Shop. This comes up when people search for my business on google and so I get a lot of frustrated people phoning and even visiting my office when they are expecting a retaill shop. There is no other apropriate catagory that I can find. Help please!

I read you are an online business.
As such you are not eligible for an local business entry at all.
Wondering why you verified this business (as it is marked as "verified local business") under this category.

Now the only advise I have would be contacting business support and asking them to take down your business page.
(you can later create a brand page instead thrrough buiness.google.com/create)

Contact business support through https://support.google.com/business/?hl=en#topic=4539639&contact=1

Thank you for your helpful reply. I don't think a brand is really suitable for me. Hopefully I have found another solution here https://support.google.com/business/answer/3038163 Graham Lundegaard --- This email has been checked for viruses by Avast antivirus software. https://www.avast.com/antivirus
