Hi

 

Is the Google team working on a feature for Restaurants where a Restaurant is Open but is Relocating and that can be shown on Maps ??

 

And when it is renovating - The status changes to Under Renovation or Temporarily Closed

 

Thanks & Regards

Anubhav

Hi @Anubhav N

 

No.

 

When the restaurant officially closes its doors for the last time, then you change the address in the business page details to the new property.

 

If you are renovating then you can use special hours, to say which days are closed.

I see

Thanks for the reply

My suggestion was merely that when you are changing your location you generally put a pop up on your website so instead of doing that why not show them this info Google Maps and maybe allow them to reply yes we are anticipating and this can also o lead to much use case for the popular hours in the knowledge panel

Just thing from a business point of view

Just a suggestion.
Don't have any expectation it would be implemented

Hi @Anubhav N

 

Yep, I get the reasoning,

 

BUT when you look at the main criteria for a business page : Be able to make in person contact during stated business hours.

 

You are either open, and people can visit, or closed.

 

Thanks for the Suggestion anyway, you never know a Googler may read this and think, hey why not

Hi Anubhav,

Just in addition to Tim's answer regarding your suggestion, I'd also recommend leaving feedback via Google+. Although Local is slowly moving away from Google+, that is still (at the moment) a good place to leave feedback of this nature.

The feedback option is available from the left hand side menu on either desktop or mobile.
