Business was Sold to New Owner

Hello Google gurus!


My business closed permanently but was recently bought by a new owner.  I haven't marked our current location as permanently closed, because I don't know how that will affect the new owner.  How do I go about this?  The new business has a different name but will have the same address.  How do I go about updating all of our Google accounts to reflect the new business?


Current Business (old, permanently closed business) info is as follows:


Business Name: Window Wear

Address: 2151 East Briarwood Avenue #600 Centennial, CO 80122

Telephone #: 720.285.2112

Google Maps URL:,-104.9657066,17z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m5!3m4!1s0...



Please help!  Thank you, thank you! :)

@Window W I know it's been a few weeks since you posted here - is this still an issue for you or have you been able to resolve the problem?

I have the same question. Sold my business on 12/29/17. New owner will be using a different name. 

How do i let Google know I no longer own this business?
