Reopening Your Business on Google Maps Can Take Two Weeks

Earlier this month, we informed people how one can close down a business on Google Maps without being that business owner. Since then, Google has posted instructions on how to reopen your business on Google Maps. The issue is, it can take up to two weeks to reopen your business.

Google said, "it can take up to two weeks in some cases."

In any event, here are the instructions on how to remove the "Place Closed" note from your Google Local listing.

  • For listings that have been claimed and verified through the Google Local Business Center, please sign in to your account and select the Edit link. The editing wizard will appear. Click the Submit button.
  • For listings that aren't claimed through the Local Business Center, they're open to community edits. Please select the Edit link below the address and select Restore Place.
