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'

I would like to comment in favor of allowing Trader Joe's to purchase the former Wild Oats building on Marginal Way in Portland, Maine to open a store in the area to give the public a choice for alternative shopping. Shortly after Whole Foods opened the other two local health food stores closed, leaving little option for shoppers. Although Trader Joe's is not exclusively "organic" it would still offer an local alternative in the area.
