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 wholeheartedly support and welcome the sale of the building to Trader Joe's. I lived within walking distance of a Trader Joe's store in San Diego, and now that I am in Maine, I regularly make trips to Massachusetts to shop at Trader Joe's stores. A number of people I know also go out of the way to do the same. It's a company that many, many people are devoted customers of, and many people have strongly desired a Trader Joe's store in Portland, and have even organized groups to make their wishes known. This sale would enable the company to move into the Portland market and make many, many Mainers happy. Please approve this divestiture. Thank you.
