- Liquor Licence in Wembley WA
SummaryWoolworths intended to acquire a takeaway packaged liquor licence located at 252 Cambridge Street Wembley WA, which traded at the time as "Harborne and Cambridge Cellars".
Market definitionThe ACCC considered the proposed acquisition in the context of a market for the supply of takeaway packaged liquor for consumption off-premises within a 2 to 5 kilometre radius of Harborne & Cambridge Cellars.
Competition analysisThe ACCC concluded that the proposed acquisition would not be likely to result in a substantial lessening of competition in the relevant market due to the large number of significant competing takeaway packaged liquor suppliers that would remain post-acquisition.
