How do I stop a competitor from marking my business as permanently closed everyday, multiple times a day?

@Sue H

 

I had a look at your history at MapMaker back to summer  last year 

No sign or trace of any actings regarding closing and reopening at all.

But I'm guessing you refer to the one visible "suggestion" if searching your business on GMaps of a mobile device .

I then see this information displayed:

"Someone suggested this status: permanetly closed"

This is a new feature on mobile indicating that someone 

suggested this status: [info about thesuggested status]

 

Many users are worried about such displayed message on their business. But don't understand the fact it doesn't mean the business IS closed.

The message clearly tells us only "someone suggested this status: permanetly closed"

 

You should understand the difference between suggestions to change a status and and the real status.

 

I now recommend you, your friends and your customers  each of oyu should contradict the suggestion of this "someone" as you already did.

But more users should contradict - hopefully this will make the suggestion sometimes disappear.

Hello
Myself and two others have been marking it as not permanently closed about
10 -15 times over the last 4 days. Even though it is just a suggestion I
have been getting calls making sure we are still open.

Is there any way to make the suggestion go away? Or do I just make a habit
of changing it multiple times a day until someone gets bored with what they
are doing?
