hello Helmut, thank you. Yes I did read it but I struggle to believe that once something has been added to google that it is impossible to remove? businesses open and close every single day .. so in the end there will be thousands of maps listings that no longer provide the service ... bit bonkers

The business should be marked as "Permanently Closed". Google won't remove the business, but this will let people know that it is no longer in business.
It's valuable for users to see that a business is closed, rather than not being able to find any information at all.
