It struck me over the weekend that the business markup that I suggested last week had a major weakness: it assumed that the business only had one address. Of course, most businesses have several addresses so I'm introducing a new element: premises. location is now not a property of a Business and nor is hoursOfBusiness. Instead, these are properties of the Business's premises and of course a business can have several premises
What kind of premises can a Business own? Off the top of my head I can think of Shop, Office, Warehouse, Factory etc. WordNet lists many more such as Hotel, Casino, Mall Nightclub etc.
Here's a revised example, showing how a Business has a premises property, the value of which is a Shop. The Shop has a location and an hoursOfBusiness:
<Business> <name>Glenwood Cafe</name> <premises> <Shop> <location> <StreetAddress> <number>1</number> <street>Glenwood Avenue</street> <town>Southend on sea</town> <county>Essex</county> <country>United Kingdom</country> <postcode>SS0 91S</postcode> </StreetAddress> </location> <hoursOfBusiness> <Schedule> <open>9:00</open> <close>17:00</close> </Schedule> <hoursOfBusiness> </Shop> </premises> </Business>
