    There doesn’t appear to be an option to get to the GMB Classic anymore. Do you have an updated process for deleting a location?

      Yes, you are right @Karli GMB classic has been discontinued.

      Google has introduced a quick and simple method for deleting any unwanted business listing.

      I have updated the new easy method as well.

      Thanks for informing about it!
