Please approve the sale of the old Wild Oats building to Trader Joe's. The original point of the sale and closure of the building was the thwart a monopoly of the organic/high-end grocery market in Maine. The addition of Trader Joe's will help in diversifying said market. The Federal Government should not stand in the way of a company wanting to expand and open new stores in new markets. The addition of Trader Joe's to the Portland, Maine landscape will only strengthen competition and add to our choices in groceries as the buying public in Portland. Thank you for your time and consideration. I can't wait to start shopping at my local Trader Joe's! It's been a dream of this town for years, thank you for doing your part to help make it happen!
