|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:We have been making frequent trips to Massachusetts and Connecticut to shop at Trader Joe's. For years, we have been asking the store clerks if one would come to Maine, and they have been saying it was rumored. Now we hear that there may be one in Portland, Maine and we are very happy and relieved. Trader Joe's offers great wholesome products at unbeatable prices, as well as a very friendly staff and work environment. Maine does not currently have enough choice, and adding Trader Joe's to the mix would be a huge improvement (not to mention save us on the gas we use to go to Massachusetts to stock up on Trader Joe's items). Allowing Trader Joe's in town would improve competition and give more needed choices to Mainers. SO PLEASE FTC APPROVE THE NEW TRADER JOE"S FOR PORTLAND, MAINE!!
