One of my clients has a Google Business Page I created for them. Recently, someone marked the location as "Permanently Closed" which of course says in a big red bar that the site is permanently closed in search and maps.
I was able to remove the closure and reinstate the location.
My questions are: Who can mark a business as permanently closed besides the owners? What would stop someone from marking a competitor's website as closed? Shouldn't the owners of the listing be notified when the closing occurs?
