I recently purchased a previously owned business and have changed the name and reopened. I am verified on Google, but the old business always comes up first and is the wrong information, also the picture is correct for old listing but not on mine.  Can I combine the business listings? Or how do I fix?

 

Buck Country Bait & Tackle LLC  (previously knows as The Eyes Have It)

109 Mackinaw Trail, Leroy, MI  49655

 

Thank you - Amy

HI @Amy C

 

I also see at the mentioned address  both listings

 

1# https://goo.gl/maps/HBYceT1wBHM2 ("Buck Country Bait & Tackle LLC")

2# https://goo.gl/maps/XFV3hgvKed92 ("Eye's Have it") 

Wondering why not having claimed "Eye's Have it" and rebranded it to "Buck Country Bait & Tackle LLC".

 

Now there are not so much options anymore:

You can report the "Eye's Have it" as permanently closed 

or 

you can ask business support merging both listings as both have the same phone number.
