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

I am writing to request that you approve of the new Alfalfa's for Boulder. This was the original home of Alfalfa's and to my knowledge one of the original organic stores anywhere. Many people still remember how much the store enhanced their lives and how much help and advice the employees gave to them. Although I no longer live in Boulder, I feel so strongly about the prospect of the new store, that I will definitely shop there at least once a week, stopping in each time I am in Boulder. There are too many Whole Foods Market stores in Boulder. They do a nice job, but do not train their people in the same way. Boulder needs the competition and more importantly, needs the valuable advice and specialty products Alfalfa's will carry. In many ways, I feel the community will come full circle with Alfalfa's at this location. It is located in the heart of Boulder and for many years was the heart of those of us who endeavor to live a healthy lifestyle. I and so many others look forward to the day Alfalfa's can once again become a cornerstone of the community and of our lives. I also believe the competition this store will create in the marketplace with Whole Foods will create additional jobs for Boulder. Tom Clark
