I support the divestiture of the former Wild Oats Marketplace property to Trader Joe's. As the greater Portland, Maine area does not have a Trader Joe's market, I have to shop at its out-of-state markets. The presence of a Trader's Joes would provide another choice in food retailing in this community, create jobs, and utilize vacant space.
