'Tis the Season to Update Your Hours on Google

pasted image 0.png

This holiday season and beyond, Google My Business is making it easier than ever to keep your small business’ hours up-to-date online. In addition to being able to set normal operating hours for your business, you can now set special hours for holidays and other exceptions to help customers know when you’re open for business.


You will now be able to set Special Hours of operation for any day of the year, even if the day(s) do not coincide with a national or publicly recognized holiday.


In addition, to help small businesses better prepare for future holidays, Special and Holiday Hours can be scheduled up to a year in advance using Google My Business. You’ll still have the flexibility to make any changes to your Special and Holiday Hours at any point up to and during the holiday seasons.
