Mark a location temporarily closed

You can mark your business or any of your locations as temporarily closed on Google. If your business temporarily closes or is seasonal, your customers will be up to date.

About temporarily closed

If you mark your business as "Temporarily closed," it won't affect local search ranking, and it will be treated similarly to open businesses. Businesses that offer pickup or delivery services should not mark their business as "Temporarily closed," otherwise those services won't show on Google.

You can inform your customers about any changes in your businesses' hours of operation or when certain services are available:

  • Special hours: Set these hours if your business has temporarily adjusted its hours of operation or has non-persistent closures. Learn how to set Special hours.
  • More hours: Set these hours if your business has different hours for specific services it offers. Learn how to set More hours.
