One webmaster at the Google webmaster forum states that:
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.
Here are some other responses from different threads:
How do I remove the "placed closed" annotation on my map? – jaydigital
I have the same issue with my business listing. I tried the normal update lisitng but it does not allow you to remove the "place closed" in there. Please help. – nfdc
In a recent announcement by Google, here is how you can remove this label:
Ă˘â‚¬Ĺ“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.Ă˘â‚¬Âť – Maps Guide Adam
Further Joel H, A google employee has given the following steps to remove it. Here is what he has to say:
Ă˘â‚¬Ĺ“I just want to reiterate: there are two types of listings with the Place Closed label, and, for each type, there's a way to remove that label.
For claimed listings through the Local Business Center (LBC): Please sign in to the LBC and select Edit to the right of the listing. On the following page, select Submit. Within a day or two the listing will appear without this label of Place Closed on Maps.
For unclaimed listings, which are open to community edits: Please select Edit below the address and choose Restore Place.Ă˘â‚¬Âť
