Curious what to do with a business that has two phone numbers for two very different purposes. There are two separate phone numbers, one for the one brick and mortar showroom and one for corporate/eCommerce site where they want all of the people purchasing/browsing online to call. What is best practice in regards to phone numbers used on local listings?
Thanks!

@chrish, in general, the only times it's not a bad idea to use the same phone number are when you've got either (1) "practitioner" listings or (2) "department" listings. Sounds like neither is applicable here. An ecommerce-only site isn't eligible to have a Google My Business page, so in this case you're only dealing with the listing for the bricks-and-mortar location.
