Do you mean the post code ?

Probably not as the whole point of a business page is accurate location information for users and customers.

No you cannot remove it from a listing connected to Google Maps. Can't say
I have ever had someone ask to do this. Is there a particular reason why
you don't want it?

Hi Joy,
Does Google have a way of showing the location on Google maps of SME businesses that work from home, without revealing the actual front door address?
The reason I ask, is that there must be many genuine companies in this situation who do not want customers knocking on their door, but still want to be found as a local supplier. For example, if you are a freelance consultant who is working wearing just a dressing gown, you don't want your best client knocking on the door without an appointment, but you still want potential clients to know that there is a great consultant in their local area.

Hi Lexus

These are known as Service Area Businesses in GMB terminology and they can hide their full address by ensuring only the checkbox "I serve customers at their location" is checked in the address setting. Part of the address will still be shown but not the full address.

@babypants - the example you listed for the other guy is not a page that is connected to Google Maps so it wouldn't ever rank in the 3-pack.
