Google Maps Bug

There’s a serious bug in Google Maps.  It is very annoying.

When a store closes, it is not removed from Google Maps!

For example, search for Quizno’s near Times Square.  Most of them are closed!

When Google Maps was first created, the data was accurate.  Over time, stores close.  Closed stores are not removed from Google Maps.  This makes Google Maps less and less accurate over time.

This is a serious flaw in Google Maps.  Stores are not removed when they close.  That’s a serious deterioration in data quality over time.
