Dear Federal Trade Commissioners, I am in full support of Trader Joe's acquiring the former Wild Oats store in Portland, Maine. Not only would such a merchant bring greatly needed income to Maine in the form of tax revenue, but they would also provide access to healthy, wholesome food at an affordable price for the people of Southern Maine. A new Trader Joes market would also provide MUCH needed jobs to the area. Furthermore, this type of store is completely compatible with surrounding commercial ventures and would enhance the residential appeal of the neighborhood. Sincerely, MaryAnn Schwanda
