Choice, that is what the founding father sought when they left Europe for America. Choice it is what we value as Americans. Choice it is what we would like to have here in Portland. Whole foods offers us healthy food, but they do it at a very high price. Trader Joe's offers us healthy food at a very affordable price. I shop at Trader Joe's but I have to drive at least 2 hours out of state to do so, it would be great to be able to spend my money where I live. Whole Foods worked very hard to eliminate their competition with a much smaller Wild Oats, Trader Joe's as a major corporation has the means to offer true choice to the people of Portland. Please say yes, let us make the choice. Thank you.
