Please approve the transfer of the old Wild Oats store in Portland, ME from Whole Foods to Trader Joe's. It will definitely increase competition and foster the increasing interest in natural foods. While Whole Foods ("Whole Paycheck?") is a huge value to Portland, Trader Joe's adds the element of price competition and variety that is so important. I live 45 minuutes north of Portland, yet will go out of my way to shop there, probably once a month. Sincerely, Sam Powers
