Simply --- Allow Trader Joe's to locate in Portland by taking over the Wild Oats store from Whole Foods. I'm from central Maine but travel frequently to Portland and will certainly shop at both stores. Each offers unique items not readily available at the standard grocery stores. In addition, Whole Foods aquistion of Wild Oats created a near monopoly. Our state should work towards preventing monopoly type situations.
