Ok, I 've done everything to correct this issue.  I don't know what is left to do so therefore, am reaching out now.  I moved my biz months ago.  I have everything verified as directed.  All is accurate except....when clients hit the google map locator icon, it takes them to my old address.  I'm done with this happening!  I can't tell clients to NOT use the locator icon....everyone does.  Where is the problem with this?  For the life of me, I can't find it.  And, from most questions asked, it's very common frustration biz owners have with google.  It seems to me, something should be done with this process. Help please

Looks like there are two locations:

 

https://www.google.com/maps/place/Bella+Lash+and+Tan/@45.397391,-122.7341267,15z/data=!4m12!1m6!3m5!...

 

and 

 

https://www.google.com/maps/place/Bella+Lash+and+Tan/@45.4068284,-122.7279184,17z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m5!...

 

The first one appears to be unclaimed. Did you ever try to claim it? Have you tried "Suggest an Edit" >"Place is permanently closed or has never existed" > "Moved Elsewhere" and then entering your new address?

Actually, it looks like mine was approved showing the old location to the new location:

Bella Lash and Tan
16552 Boones Ferry Rd, Lake Oswego, OR 97034
APPROVED · Map marker · Address
 
Give it a day and see if that fixes it

Its already showing at the new location - you are currently stuck with duplicate listings at this point.  Follow these steps https://support.google.com/business/answer/4669139?hl=en
