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 Mr. Ducore, I would like to add my voice to the many here in Portland, Maine who feel that having a local Trader Joe's supermarket would be a tremendous benefit to the community. Once Whole Foods took over and closed the Wild Oats branch in town, our local access to affordable, natural groceries (such as those offered by Trader Joes) has been greatly limited. I urge you to enable Trader Joe's to take over the space formerly occupied by Wild Oats, to encourage some healthy retail competition! Thank you for your consideration. Sincerely, Deena Schoenfeld
