If a business has two domains, one for City A, and one for City B (that is 3 hours away), but they decide to shutter the site for City B and redirect that URL to the site for City A, would that hurt your ranking for searches in City A? I believe it would, but I just want to get some other opinions.

I have never seen it have a negative impact at all.

Thanks, I wasn't 100% sure so I wanted to crowdsource it a bit.

Google has gotten better at discrediting spam links over the years. Just make sure that if you 301 redirect the domain, that you don't let it expire.
