Google is changing the local pack in the web search results to remove some of the addresses of those business listings. This is only for some businesses, I believe, and for the local pack. When you click through, you do get the address.

Ben Fisher and Jason Brown shared some screen shots of this. Ben wrote "GMB Do Not Panic Alert: If you see your service business (including hybrids that show addresses) displaying no address in the 3-pack or local finder do not worry this is working as intended and is a test. The address still shows when the profile is displayed."

If your business is located in a permanently closed business it can lead to confusion.

So be aware of this change, although I think I've seen Google testing this for some time.
