If your business has ceased to operate, just send an update and we'll mark it closed. HappyCow publishes business listing information so that consumers can share their experiences about local businesses, and because the information is typically a matter of public record and public concern. Therefore we don’t remove such information from the site.
While we understand that some business owners might prefer not to publicize their business for whatever reason, it’s important (and a legal right) for consumers to be able to find and share helpful information about businesses.
If you need to update or change the information on your business page, please submit any changes by clicking the Update button at the bottom of your listing’s page, and submitting a detailed note with any relevant information.
