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'

Dear FTC, I strongly support the sale of the Former Wild Oats store now oned by Whole Foods to Trader Joes. Since losing the Wild oats store we have no other Portland stores that can directly compete in the area of " affordable " Natural Foods. Our family stops in at a Trader Joes in Cambridge Mass. a 2 hour trip to get affordable natural and unusual foods. Trader Joe's would be a fantastic addition to the Portland Grocery market where High Price stores dominate downtown and for those who are dependant on walking and Public Transportation. I strongly support allowing Trader Joes to purchase the former Wild Oats store on Marginal Way in Portland, Maine. Respectfully, Lyndon D. Keck
