Yelp publishes business 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 to keep a low profile, it’s important (and a legal right) for consumers to be able to find and share helpful information about great local businesses.
If you need to update or change the information on your business page, please submit any changes by editing your business information on Yelp for Business Owners or on the Yelp for Business Owners app and submitting a detailed note with any supplementary information.
If your business is permanently closed, please let us know by reporting it. Please note that closed businesses sometimes still appear in Yelp search results, for example, to inform users that the business is closed.
