Unable to claim/verify because it's a duplicate of another.

Hello,

I have been trying to complete this process for over 2 weeks now. We just opened a new store, but I am unable to claim the business address.

The store is located in a strip mall so I understand that other business are using the same address except the suite#.

 

Currently, if I google my business it will not show in the immediate results. If i dig deeper and zoom into the map the business shows.

I need people to see my business address at the start of thier search.

 

I am sitting at the store computer and if I google UPS stores near me the results do not show my store...

 

I am sorry if this quite jumbled, just quite frustruated.

@Daniel D

you can't get this verified as there is an verified one already with the same address.

Its http://maps.google.com/?cid=10585014556063813756

 

I doubt there are at the same address two UPS stores:

one at the plain address "3756 West Avenue 40, Los Angeles, CA 90065, USA" (http://maps.google.com/?cid=10585014556063813756) and one other at "3756 West Avenue 40 #K, Los Angeles, CA 90065, USA"

I understand its already verified, but not by me. Maybe I am not understanding this process, but I am trying to claim ownership to that business page/location/etc.

 

I have followed the steps google emailed be about contacting the page owner.

 

Is it possible that UPS has a corporate account with google and claims any UPS Stores business pages? This is what I am experiencing with Yelp at the moment.

@Daniel D

again yo can't claim a listing being claimed already

 

But there is a procedure to get ownership tranferred to the real business owner.

It's "

Someone else verified my business

"
