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

Dear Mr. Ducore, My family and I live in Falmouth, Maine. I am writing to strongly encourage the FTC to approve the sale of the Marginal Way location in Portland, Maine to Trader Joe's. We were very disappointed in the approved merger of Wild Oats and Whole Foods, as it greatly reduced our options in this area. Trader Joe's is a great alternative to Whole Foods, and currently the closest one is hours away in Massachusetts. We greatly look forward to a Trader Joe's store nearby soon! Thank you for your consideration. -Stephen Davis
