Urban Food in New Acton goes into liquidiation

Kirsten Lawson

The Urban Food store in the New Acton precinct has gone into liquidation, closing its doors a fortnight ago.

Liquidator Deloitte is looking to sell the business, which is both a cafe and mini-supermarket. This was always a handy place to buy stuff when we lived on campus, and it was big on organics, but it seemed one of the more expensive places to do your shopping.

It was also handy for wine - especially as Mocan and Green Grout a couple of doors down is BYO only, but Molonglo Group food and beverage manager Michael Gray says both A. Baker and Hotel Hotel in the precinct are licensed to sell alcohol to takeaway - and A. Baker does a retail discount off its wine list prices.

The Urban Food leased the space from the Molonglo Group.
