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 feel that allowing Trader Joes the opportunity to move into the Maine marketplace would be good for the local consumer, offer jobs, and alloe some healthy competition for the current "healthy food chain" Whole Foods. I enjoy the product line that Trader Joes offers as well as the reasonable pricing. In todays economy that would certainly benefit the consumer. I do not feel that the opening of Trader Joe's would impact local growers/producers as we in Maine strongly support our small businesses and farms. I believe we will continue to do so. Sincerely, B.Coleman
