A fresh liquor store acquisition proposed by Woolworths has gone before Australia's competition watchdog, which is now considering a total of five liquor transactions planned by the retailer.
As reported by TheShout last week, Woolworths is already awaiting ACCC clearance for its acquisitions of liquor stores in Tasmania and Queensland, and the purchase of NSW pubs and bottle shops by its pubs arm, Australian Leisure & Hospitality Group.
In the latest deal, Woolies plans to acquire a takeaway packaged liquor licence located at Glenfield Park near Wagga Wagga, NSW.
This licence currently trades under the name 'South City Liquor' and is part of the Local Liquor banner group.
The ACCC has invited interested parties to comment on the proposal by May 14.
