Google Maps Still Offering Old Business Listings Page?

A very active Google Maps user reported a bug in Google Maps at Google Maps Help forums. Recently Google Maps launched place pages for each business listing. It basically meant Google made a nice shiny page for each local business listed in Google Maps.

I think what the bug is showing is that you can still access an old business listing page.

For example, here is an old listing page of a Tekoe Tee Bern tea-Boutique with less information then what would be seen on the new listing page. Here are pictures comparing the two:

Old Page:

Google Maps Local Listings Old

New Page:

Google Maps Local Listings New

I personally tried to replicate how this person was able to navigate to this page, but I was unsuccessful. I tried several different ways, so maybe Google fixed the issue but there has been no response from a Googler yet on this matter.
