Hi community!

Im unable to add "Furrier" as a category to my business profile. Its crucial that Im able to add this category as I have dropped in rankings from 1st to 6th.


Any help would greatly be appreciated.

@David A


there are many  similar strange category issues.

Your "Furrier" is a very strange one and I will escalate it to Google soon.

Despite of the fact "Furrier" is a valid category in MapMaker it isn't indeed listed  in the English Userinterface for GMB.

Not only for you country USA but neither for Canada nor UK 

Used to be there shouldn't any such discrepancy handling categories between MapMaker and GoogleMyBusiness.


As a workaround I recommend meanwhile creating an entry for your business through MapMaker


Good luck
