A shop was bought out and rebranded. How do we delete the old business listing from Google Maps?

Google does not remove listings completely. If you have control of it, you can mark it as closed in the dash and then remove it from the account if you'd like. This will prevent it from showing in search results, but will still show for brand searches. If it shows, it will have the permanently closed banner on it.
