A computer IT company has lodged an application for the
liquidation of former Queenstown Lakes District councillor
Aaron Heath's Helwick St business, Wanaka Pharmacy Ltd.
Think Concepts Limited, a company with branches around New
Zealand which specialises in providing IT systems for the
pharmacy industry, lodged its liquidation application with
the High Court at Dunedin last week.
Mr Heath is a pharmacist who has run the Wanaka Pharmacy
since about 1995. He was elected as a single-term councillor
to the QLDC in 2004 and also owns the Wanaka Sun community
A Lower Hutt-based solicitor for Think Concepts was
instructed to make no comment.
Mr Heath said the liquidation application "in no way
affected" his other business interests or the viability of
the Wanaka Sun.
A complaint has been lodged with the New Zealand Law Society
against Think Concepts Ltd, he said.
The matter is scheduled to be heard in Dunedin on May 9.
