The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) is seeking comment on Woolworth’s proposal to acquire a takeaway packaged liquor licence in Rocherlea, Tasmania.

The ACCC has released a Statement of Issues in hope to seek further information on certain competition issues which have arisen from the ACCC's review to date.

The licence that Woolworth’s wants to acquire currently trades as Black Stallion Hotel Drive-Thru Bottleshop under the Big Bargain Bottleshop banner.
The ACCC invites further submissions from the market in response to the Statement of Issues by 23 February 2012. As a result, the ACCC's final decision will be deferred until 8 March 2012.

The Statement of Issues will be available on the public merger register on the ACCC's website,

Submissions can be sent by email to the ACCC at:
