I have a client with 2 locations in Denver. One is closed. A branded search renders the closed location. Of course, we'd like to show the open location instead of a notice that the business is temporarily closed. Any ideas on the best way to do this? Do we try to merge the listings? Delete the closed one? Is there a way to redirect? I'm all ears, thanks.

@Dino, is the "closed" location temporarily closed or permanently closed?

If it's the former, there's not much you can do. If it's the latter, you'll want to ask Google to merge the closed page into the open one. (That will be tantamount to a redirect.)
