- Vic's Liquor Bossley Park
SummaryWoolworths Limited proposed acquisition of Vic's Liquor, Bossley Park, NSW.
Market definitionThe ACCC considered the relevant markets to be:
- the local market for the supply of liquor for off-premises consumption;
- procurement markets; and
- the national wholesale market.
Competition analysisThe transaction results in a very small increase of market share to Woolworths in the procurement and wholesale markets. Following the acquisition there will continue to be a number of independent liquor stores operating in the relevant local area. For these reasons the acquisition is unlikely to result in a substantial lessening of competition in any market.
