Good afternoon,


I write to you in relation to the following Google Listings:


Skinnys Toowoomba [ADDRESS: 200 Herries Street, Toowoomba QLD 4350  PHONE: 07 4659 5500] 



Skinnys Kedron [ADDRESS: 325 Gympie Road, Kedron QLD 4031  PHONE: 07 3161 6578] 



Skinnys Brisbane - Myer Centre [ADDRESS: 91 Queen Street, Brisbane QLD 4000  PHONE: 07 3229 3083]

*Note address is not specific enough, and should actually be Shop 249, Level 2 Myer Centre, Brisbane QLD 4000



Skinnys Clontarf [ADDRESS: 61 Snook Street, Clontarf QLD 4019  PHONE: 07 3883 2023]



Skinnys [ADDRESS: Corner Redland Bay & Mt Cotton Roads, Capalaba QLD 4157  PHONE: 07 3390 1230]
*This is missing the Shop Number, and should be: Shop 7 Capalaba Park Shopping Centre, Cnr Mt Cotton & Redland Bay Rd, Capalaba QLD 4157



I am owner of Skinnys. The website is which we can also prove ownership of if need be. We have set up a Business Account through our Google Account. We have managed to verify East Brisbane, and have added Skinnys Hyperdome which is pending verification. But when I tried to claim these other five they came up with a message saying they are already verified. Could you please organise for the above addresses to be either unverified, or reallocated to our Business Account?


Thanks so much for your help with this! Please don't hesitate to get in contact with us at head office via phone (07) 3883 2040 to discuss this further. You are also very welcome to contact each of the above listed stores to confirm that I am the actual owner if you wish to.

Hi @Bruce H


You need to apply separately for each of th above locations this procedure:

Automating Ownership Conflict for Individuals

it's highly recommended to do this not from any of your "private" Google Accounts but from an account based  on the domain of the listing in question.

Thank you very much, Helmut. Would our information and a request be sent to the current person who has verified our listing? This would be a problem for us. I know he will just ignore it, or refuse ownership, because of the circumstances. However we are the owner of this business, the above listed stores, and the domain.


Kind regards,
