I purchased a business "Southwest Vision Center" and reopened as "San Marcos Vision Center".  The previous owner indicated the business was closed on his google account.  When searching for SAN MARCOS VISION CENTER, SAN MARCOS, TX,  it is resulting in 2 pushpins, both labeled as San Marcos Vision Center, one with our current google info which is correct, and the other with his information, bad reviews, and his phone numbers.  This is confusing customers, as his old business is showing OUR name but indicating that it is a closed business!!   How do I get his old business to show the correct name  - Southwest Vision Center - or have it not appear at all?
