History

Being relatively small compared to interstate capital cities, the city of Hobart long drew a sense of its identity from the Myer department store. Occupying 8,000 m2 (86,000 sq ft),[3] with frontages on both Liverpool and Murray streets, it was known as Hobart's Anchor store. In 2007, a fire destroyed the larger, Liverpool street section of Myer.[1][4][5]
