I feel that the Portland community will be greatly improved with the addition of a Trader Joe's in its midst, and the former Wild Oats building (now owned by Whole Foods) is a perfect location for it. For one, the store will be widely accessible in such a spot, and the area is one which is becoming increasingly bettered by the stores which have opened there. Trader Joe's stores are currently too far from Maine to allow Maine residents to frequent them, being in Massachusetts. Having one in this particular building in this particular location in Portland which is a drawing card for locals and tourists alike can only benefit the community.
