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

To: Cc: Subject: Whole Foods Sale to R-M Holdings,LLC (Alfalfa's) Docket #9324 Dear Mr. Libby, We are writing to show our support for A-M Holdings, LLC plans to purchase the Whole Foods Market store located at 1651 Broadway in Boulder, Colorado and the intellectual property pertaining to Alfalfa's Markets. Having lived in Boulder since the early 1970's I have seen our town grow into a unique health conscious community with a commitment to making our planet a better place. One of the reason's Boulder has become a leading center for the natural and organic foods industry is directly attributed to the dream that was fulfilled by the founding members of the original Alfalfa's Market at this Broadway location. This store is not just another "Health Food Store". It was the heart, soul and conscience of a movement that has grown into the reality that we can change the way the world feeds and sustains itself. It is living proof that we can achieve that dream. By allowing this store to be returned to it's original owners and retain the Alfalfa's name would have the end result of bringing back the competition the the FTC has been trying to achieve. Please bring Alfalfa's back home. Sincerely, Tamara and Gus Lester
