Trader Joes would be an huge asset to the Portland area. It would bring another successful community oriented business to the area which would also benefit the surrounding businesses and the city of Portland. It would provide jobs and promote more organic food availability While Whole Foods may see there potential move into neighboring space as competitive in some respects, it may also have a positive effect by bringing more potential customers to the area that would also shop at Whole Foods. I think Whole Foods will continue to be successful in the niche that they serve which is somewhat different from Trader Joes. I appreciate the opportunity to provide a positive comment on Trader Joes coming to Portland....we can't wait.
