Google (My) Business Profile Questions Answered by Professor M

I have closed one business and now seeing the same clients at my new business. If they already left a Google review at the closed location and leave another Google Review at my new business will this negatively affect my ranking?

Yes, it’s fine. Actually, they should write a Google review if they have dealt with you at the new business.

I’d just advise them not to copy and paste the old review (so it’s not identical).
