Dan, All of us here who live in the Portland area are in strong support of bringing Trader Joe's to Maine. Why is it that Whole Foods have basically zero competition? Portland is probably the only city where Whole Foods doesn't have or need to contend with competition. Besides that, Trader Joes is a different market. By allowing them to purchase the former Wild Oats building, you are going to help the surrounding businesses including the student housing folks...who really need better grocery options. In this economy, when people are cutting coupons, and striving to eat healthier, Trader Joe's is really the answer. It's a shame that many of us have to make monthly shopping trips to Boston. It's just taking money away from our city, when jobs at Trader Joe's could be created. Please support this!!! Thanks! -- Rebecca Bing
