Helen's Drapery





I was wondering if it's possible to add "Drapery" or "Drapery Shop/Store" to your list of categories, because that is what the majority of my business consists of. Currently there is no such category available on the drop down menu. Also, I am not able to add "Window Treatment Store" to my secondary categories through the list as well despite the fact that my competitors are listed as such.


Thank you so much,

Hi @Helens D


while I understand (but can't much help about) the drapery issue I can help about the "Window Treatment Store" category:


This category is available for Canadians as "Curtain shop".

And "Curtain shop" is internal in GMB encoded  as a parameter "gcid: window_treatment_store" (this is the same encoding as for "Window Treatment Store" in the US
