In Google My Business for our master account we have store names that is asking us to fix - SHOE SHOE, SHOE DEPT., SHOE DEPT. ENCORE, SHOE SHOW MEGA STORE these are trade marked names.  Can someone at Google correct this for us.  We have 1186 stores we have to correct this for by copy and pasting and it seems as if Google keeps changing it back.  Example SHOE SHOW --> Shoe Show, SHOE DEPT. --> Shoe Dept. again these are registered trade mark businesses.

Hi @Robert D

 

This is the bit in the guidelines that I think is the issue:

 

Fully capitalised words (with the exception of acronyms) or unnecessary spaces.

  • Not acceptable: "SUBWAY"
  • Acceptable: "Subway", "KFC", "IHOP", "JCPenney"
