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'

I am in support of the sale of the Whole Foods store at 87 Marginal Way, Portland, Maine, to Trader Joe's East, Inc. This action will help restore competition in this area of our local economy and increase the affordable food choices available to all residents of Portland, especially those of us within walking and biking distance. Having Trader Joe's at this location will bring items to our market that are simply not available north of Massachusetts and stimulate competition between existing food retailers in the area. I hope the FTC will support this sale and Portland will have a Trader Joe's soon!
