Wow. What an unbelievable mistake you are making by forcing TOPS to sell 7 stores based on the premise of them being a monopoly. I have heard that the FTC doesn't consider Walmart a monopoly as far as a grocer. You people must be out of your minds. You haven't got an ounce of common sense between you if you truly believe that TOPS is a monopoly yet Walmart isn't. THis decision is so incredible it really boggles the mind and sensibilities. I imagine that my insinuating your gross stupidity will not endear you to me or the idea that you have 30 days to change your minds but I would still ask you to consider it. You truly are needlessly causing great harm and distress to 450 individuals who will not have the same level of health care or wages that they need to survive.I hope you folks enjoy your inflated paychecks that you are earning based on an obvious deficit of knowledge in the "real" world. Really people, is this serving the community or "self" serving some folks that have other agendas.
