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'

Hello, Please allow me to add my name to the list of supporters of bringing Trader Joe's to Portland Maine. The year that Whole Foods bought out the small co-op between Whole Foods and Wild Oats I contacted Trader Joe's suggesting that the small store would be a perfect location for them. Hearing that Trader Joe's would now like to fill the former Wild Oats store is very exciting. I was introduced to Trader Joe's when I was a resident in Seattle, Washington. As my daughter and I travel south to visit family in Maryland we always stop at the Trader Joe's in Shrewsbury, MA. On our last visit in December we were told that many Mainers shop at Trader Joe's and they were listening to our request for a store in Maine. I do hope you will pass along my message of support on this issue. Portland and other parts of Maine deserve reasonably priced delicious food. Thank you, Carol Lundberg
