Re: In the Matter of Whole Foods Market, Inc., Docket Number 9324 As a longtime resident of Boulder, I am making a strong request that the rights to the name Alfalfa's Market be granted to A-M Holdings. These are the people that created the original Alfalfa's Market at the location being considered. They provided a tremendously important service to our community. They always acted as a committed member of our community and built a solid base of supporters in Boulder. As a center for the natural food industry, Boulder needs competition to the several Whole Food Markets in our town. The participants in A-M Holdings have already demonstrated their ability to compete effectively with Whole Food. We need Alfalfa's Market to return to Boulder. The name Alfalfa's Market has a long and strong association with the accomplishments, outstanding service and good will established by the original Alfalfa's Market. We want that service, that quality and that name back in Boulder. Respectfully yours, Jeff Grossberg
