How to PokeSTOP - Pokemon Go
The latest computer game craze is Pokemon GO and it is either a blessing or a curse to retail stores and even private homes. Cemeteries and funeral homes are also likely sites for the elusive "ghost" to be located at a real-time location with players showing up numbering anywhere from one or two people into the hundreds. Depending upon a retailer's point of view, this new game is either an opportunity to develop prospects, or a royal pain and general nuisance. Those businesses that want "in" to this game can list themselves as a Pokestop and attract visitors as a Pokelure. However, business owners and managers not so inclined may want to remove their location from the game. To do this, Niantic, the Pokemon GO people, have established a link to let you do just that. Go (no pun intended) to www.telapost.com/remove-pokemon that will link you to the removal site and provide you with helpful tips. The ICCFA has already requested the removal of its office location although it is too soon to know whether it has been done.
