I support strongly the sale of the said property to Trader Joe's. In short, the proposed sale would foster competition to the benefit of the consumer. Of paramount importance is that the competition would not be excessive, duplicative, or to the detriment of Whole Foods or Trader Joe's because these two stores cater to different market segments. Not only when the consumer benefit, the approval would foster further development in this up-and-coming area such that there would be spillover benefit to all consumers, which parallels FTC's mission. Please vote yes.
