FTC Seeks Public Comments on Two More Proposed Whole Foods Divestitures, Docket No. 9324, FTC File No. 071 0114

Boulder residents want the original Alfalfa's market on Broadway to be restored in the Divestiture of Whole Foods. Alfalfa's was the first full size organic food store in Boulder and has both competitive and historical significance. Situated near the Boulder Public Library and the Boulder Creek Bike Path and Park, it represents the heart of Boulder Community life and it's commitment to locally owned businesses. Returning Alfalfa's to Boulder will have a much greater impact in restoring competition (for the market Whole Foods has almost exclusively) than allowing a non-locally vendor to operate at the location. No to Topco! Yes to Alfalfa's!
