Local businesses displaying in showrooms

Hi there,

 

We have a client (www.robertson.co.nz) that have a physical location on the outskirts of Auckland (which has a GMB listing) but they also showcase a lot of their products through showrooms in major cities in New Zealand. If someone is searching for their brand or bathroom products in that local vicinity, it would be better if the showroom appeared in search (maps etc) than the main office in Auckland and I wondered if it is within Google's guidelines to list a business within a showroom (For example: http://www.homeideas.co.nz/). This would help to increase their visibility for local search queries but I don't want to set this up if it is against Google's guidelines.

 

Any advice would be gratefully received before we move forward with this.

are the other "showrooms" staffed during certain specified openeing hours and do they have each local phone numbers different for the phone of the main business?
In this case you could create separate listings of GoogleMyBusiness

Hi Helmut,

Thanks for coming back to me. The showrooms are staffed during specified opening hours both during the week and on the weekend and each have a local phone number (although that phone number covers off all companies exhibiting in the showroom, not just the company we work with).

I think from what you are saying that we can set up a GMB listing for the company using this separate telephone number and opening hours .
