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'

To whom it may concern, I am writing to show my support for the opening of a Trader Joe's store in Portland, Maine in the former location of Wild Oats. Trader Joe's is an exceptional chain of food stores and would greatly increase the grocery options in and around the Portland area. The opening of a Trader Joe's would not only increase the number of families who are able to eat good, wholesome, natural food, but would also help to provide the people of Portland with a high-quality, less-expensive alternative to Whole Foods. Additionally, I believe a Trader Joe's in the old Wild Oats building would draw a lot of customers from the surrounding communities, even perhaps as far away as Kittery, and thus help to stimulate the overall economy in the Portland area. Thank you for your time, Sarah Reynolds
