Google has recently added a new option to the Google Business Profile settings to remove that business profile. It is named "Removed Business Profile" and will allow you to mark a business as closed or permanently remove the business.

I think I saw this last week but I had no idea it was new, but Claudia T on Twitter said it is new. She said "Once hit you are able to permanently remove all content added by you, and all managers. Kind of dangerous!" Yep.

So be careful and maybe try never to use this and oh, do not give permission to employees to do this...

Forum discussion at Twitter.
