    Hi,

    I am slightly confused as to what is happening with the Categories that Google Places is presenting me with.
    I always assumed that when starting to type a Category, the dropdown menu would show me the official Categories that are available.

    However, for two different listings I am presented with different dropdown options?

    Example 1 (Bolton, UK):

    Example 2 (Bury, UK):

    Can somebody please explain what is going on here?
    (plumbers’ merchant actually is a better categorisation)

    Many thanks in advance,
    Kind regards,

    Greg

    If I had to guess, Google is displaying synonymous categories. That is plumber’s merchant is a localized version of plumber’s supply store. For some reason, one of your listings is displaying the localized categories and the other isn’t.
