|Rule:||FTC Seeks Public Comments on Trustee's Proposal to Divest One Store under Whole Foods Market Inc. Divestiture Order; Docket No. 9324; FTC File No. 071 0114|
Comments:In response to this request: "The Divestiture Trustee is now requesting FTC approval to sell the Whole Foods store at 87 Marginal Way, Portland, Maine, to Trader Joe's East, Inc.", I strongly encourage the approval of this sale by the FTC. Trader Joe's is a perfect replacement for what we lost when Wild Oats was bought and a good competitor for Whole Food to have in this market to keep prices down. The location is also convenient both for those right in Portland and those of us who live within easy travel of this site with adequate parking. Trader Joe's will also contribute to all the improvements being made to this area of Portland where things are moving in the right direction. Please approve this sale.
