Level343's insight:

The answer to each is pretty much the same. Some givens of the Google Plus page environment:

 

Google will automatically create a G+ Page for local for any business that has a bricks and mortar presence, as well as for individual doctors, lawyers and real estate agents at those locations.Typically there is no way to suppress or delete this G+ Page for local.It is not possible to merge two G+ Pages (unless they are both of the type: local and for the same business at the same address, in which case you should contact support). Nor is it possible to pass followers from one page to another.Google is much, much more likely to show a G+ Page for local in the search results than a company/brand page for a given local business.A business can have as many other G+ Page types as they desire for their brand, events or the parent company.
