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'
Mr. Ducore I hope you will consider Trader Joe's opening a store in the former Wild Oats Store, in Portland, Maine. Like many of my friends, we drive several hours to Massachusetts to stock up at Trader Joe's. In Maine, at this time, Shaw's and Hannafords have a monopoly on grocery stores. There is one Whole Foods in all of Maine. We are the end of the line and usually overlooked by specialty stores. Many of us have written time and time again to Trader Joes to open a store in Maine and now we are hearing there is that possibility. I will happily drive 60 miles instead of 150 to go there. Please consider this and know that there are many other taxpayers who feel the way our family does. Thank You, Catherine SellWhitefield, Maine
