I'm working with a home security company. While they provide their service at the customer's home, they have a corporate office with a full staff. And while customers don't usually go to their corporate office, they could during business hours, which is like Mon.-Fri. 8-5 p.m.

My first question is, do I have to hide their address in Google+ Local?

My second question is, can we merge their Google+ Business Page with their Google+ Local page? The last time I was looking to do this only bricks and mortar businesses could do this, not service-based businesses. I'm just not sure how this business is classified in Google's eyes.

Thanks Linda. I wasn't aware of this change. Looks like I need to start spending a lot more time in here:)
