Gympie hotel goes into liquidation
A GYMPIE hotel owner is the subject of a liquidation order issued in the Brisbane Supreme Court yesterday.
The Supreme Court Registrar ordered the liquidation of Milliways Mercantile Pty Ltd, owner of Gympie’s Chambers Restaurant and Hotel in Mary Street, after an application from a creditor.
Former Gympie publisher Anthony James Stower, of Rocky Ridge Road, Gympie, is named in Australian Securities and Investment Commission documents as the sole director of the company.
Formerly the Commercial Hotel, the business occupies one of Gympie’s significant heritage buildings, built in the 19th Century.
The creditor, Persal and Co, trading as Handy Hire, alleged as grounds for its action “a failure to comply with a statutory demand” that the company pay a debt of $3231, as ordered in Gympie Magistrates Court on February 4.
A spokesperson for Persal and Co’s solicitor, MSB Lawyers, confirmed yesterday that the liquidation order had been made.
