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'

Good afternoon Dan, I am writing in support of bring Trader Joe's to Portland, ME. I have been writing to them at their website for years asking for them to open a store here. It is badly needed! Currently Whole Foods does an incredible business, but is prohibitive to many due to their high prices. Our "regular" grocery chains are Hannaford Bros. and Shaw's. Both have high prices causing many, including ourselves to travel to NH (an hour's drive) to stock up on staples. Trader Joe's would end that. The market here would support TJ's. I work for one of the largest employers here and today the office was "abuzz" with news that we could get a TJ's. Please help us get Trader Joe's into our lovely city! Thank you, Patricia A.
