i'm now verified as the google page admin, via authentication, but i'm wondering how to get rid of all the old pictures and reviews. is it best to mark this page as closed and start a new one?

new store: 2.O's (2nd location of O's Clothes)

moved into: Revolution Kids' old location

The business that was originally there business name the same as your business? 

 

If the business name is different then your business name, you can mark their business as Permanently Closed and start a new listing for yourself. 

 

IMPORTANT: Make sure the Name, Phone number, and URL are what the old business had. I see you changed the URL and phone number to yours. If you do not do this your new listing will get suspended.
