Client acquired a foreign company with multiple physical location

This is my client’s current Google+ business page:
 
This is their website: lockandstore.com and it is based in Singapore.
 
Recently, they acquired thestorehouse.com which is based in Hong Kong. The whole site is migrated to: lockandstore.com/hk-en and lockandstore.com/hk-tc (english and traditional chinese)
 
Here you can see that there are 4 Hong Kong store locations for self storage.
 
My question:
1) The right way to do this is to create a brand page, and 4 more Hong Kong local pages within the same business account?
 
Or do i simply create another GMB page with another gmail specifically for the 4 Hong Kong physical locations separately?
 
Or do i create another GMB account and page but simply list the 4 physical addresses in that HK page?
 
2) I couldn’t really find thestorehouse.com’s Google+ listings but if they exist, does it matter now that we create new Hong Kong Google+ local pages under the acquiring brand name (Lock and Store) using their 4 physical location in HK?
 
3) Can i do schema for the sub domain: www.lockandstore.com/hk-en and their translation www.lockandstore.com/hk-tc using the Singapore’s Google+ details?
 
Thanks

Hi @Gravitas I,

 

Thanks for writing in! I have broken down your questions below, and provided my answers below each question. 

 

1) The right way to do this is to create a brand page, and 4 more Hong Kong local pages within the same business account?  Or do i simply create another GMB page with another gmail specifically for the 4 Hong Kong physical locations separately? Or do i create another GMB account and page but simply list the 4 physical addresses in that HK page?
You can go either route here--it is within our Google My Business policies to have one GMB page for each physical location where customers can come to your business. 
 
2) I couldn’t really find thestorehouse.com’s Google+ listings but if they exist, does it matter now that we create new Hong Kong Google+ local pages under the acquiring brand name (Lock and Store) using their 4 physical location in HK?
If there are existing Google My Business pages for a location, it is best that you take over ownership of that page. If it does not exist, you are welcome to create a new one. 
 
3) Can i do schema for the sub domain: www.lockandstore.com/hk-en and their translationwww.lockandstore.com/hk-tc using the Singapore’s Google+ details?
We only allow one site to be tied to each Google My Business page. 
 
Let me know if you have any additional questions, and I am happy to help!
 
Best,
