How to edit your Google My Business opening hours - post header image - SiteBites

Your business might have different opening hours at certain times of the year, like over the Easter weekend, Christmas, or just when your favourite football team’s playing at home. (Ahem.) At these times, it’s really important to let your customers know when you’ll be available.

Changing your opening hours on your website is a great start. (Contact us if you’d like any help with that.) But for ultimate professional credibility, you should also add your Special Opening Hours on your Google My Business page, too. These don’t replace your usual hours, but they’re added to your Google Business listing, so everyone knows your holiday availability.

Here are ours, for the upcoming Easter weekend:

Step B: Click the pencil icon to edit the Special Hours information.
