We support the sale of the Wild Oats store in Portland, Maine, to Trader Joe's. In fact, we would be wildly joyous to have TJ's come to Maine. We make special trips to Massachusetts just to shop at TJ's. Having it in Maine would mean much less gas usage and pollution, since we wouldn't have to drive nearly as far. Also, Trader Joe's philosophy of customer service would be a positive asset for Portland's community, and they offer healthy food at reasonable prices. It will quite likely bring in many people from other parts of Maine, who may shop at other Portland stores as well.
