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'

Having been in the military, I have lived in various parts of the country. I have been a shopper of both Trader Joe's and Whole Foods. I do not think that having a Trader Joe's around the corner from the Whole Foods in Portland would be a bad thing. I love both stores for their own uniqueness. I currently travel 2 hours to go to the Trader Joe's in Massachussetts. Having a Trader Joe's in Maine would be wonderful and I welcome it. However, I find it ironic that this is even an issue since Whole Foods was able to go in around the block from Wild Oats several years ago. I am glad that Maine is finally attracting some of my favorite businesses. Now if we can only get a Costco.
