I love Linda's image in her post about getting the hours right on local business listings:

And now there's another reason for getting the hours right - an Android update is now rolling out that tells navigators if they're likely to miss the store open hours:


Google Maps for Android now lets you know if your destination will be closed upon arrival | 9to5Google

And then there's this classic - unclaimed, unloved, so Google closed it... No missing this!

Haha Margaret! Good ones all!

I'd seen that new info about the mobile message, but had not had a chance to read or share, so thanks so much for posting.

I'll share this one in the AM!

Thanks for the share Margaret! I completely agree that this is indeed one more reason to make sure the business hours are correct, not only in the GMB, but on all the major local business directories as well.
