    I recently purchased an EDM for a service in a city. The keywords I want to rank for all include the city name. I think there is enough traffic to justify creating a fictional G+ Local listing as well. Any recommendations? Should I rent a mailbox for a month to verify the listing?

    get a mail box, I did the same and is listed. Try to find a small company. I found 2, One is a dry cleaner that have mail boxes and the other is a small pack and ship, both are in small shopping centers.

    When you list your address is like
    address suite 140-35
    you do not put POBOX anywhere

    What's wrong with your home address? If you want multiple listings, you can always do the suite trick

    (Suite #1, Myaddress, Mytown; Suite #2, Myaddress, Mytown) etc. Although I don't really do local SEO, so although I heard that trick worked, I may not be correct.

    suite trick works and also there are other methods listed on BHW concerning getting your address listed on local.

    Here are a few options (most already noted above, just summarizing):

    1. Use your home address - only good if your business provides a service at the client's location (if so be sure to check that box in G+).
    2. If you use your home address and need to list multiple businesses, do the suite trick.
    3. Rent a virtual office (preferable over a mailbox).
    4. Rent a mailbox, but do not use PO box in the address.
