View new address location, not old closed location

Hello. I changed the location of my business, Kilns College and closed the former location. However, when 'Kilns College' is searched in Google, the old location (Industrial Way) comes up (as closed) instead of the new location. How do I get the new location (255 SW Bluff Dr, Bend OR 97702) to come up when someone is searching for our business??

 

Kilns College

255 SW Bluff Dr Bend, OR 97702

Hey Katie,

I'll go ahead and ask Google to mark your old address as moved (http://searchengineland.com/google-fixing-permanently-closed-problem-242364). You should fix the business name on your new listing. It should just list "Kilns College". All the words that come after that are considered descriptors and aren't allowed.
