Google Maps Closes Down Business When it is Still in Operation

A business owner is showing his frustration with Google over Google Maps listing his business as closed. In a Google Webmaster Help thread, this business owner said:

The search result from Google shows our office as closed (the exact phrase shown is "place closed")

Can someone please point me how I can get this corrected? Our office is not closed.

Want to see it yourself? Here is a link to the live map, but for archival purposes, here is a screen capture:

Google Maps Closed Business

Notice how it says, "place closed" directly under the business name.

This business owner can fix this by going to the Google Local Business Center and updating his listing there. And if you have not verified your business, go do so, so this doesn't happen to you!
