Comments:Dear Sirs: We are delighted to learn from the Portland Press Herald this morning about the possibility of a Trader Joe's in Portland. No trip to visit family in New Hampshire is complete without a trip to the MA Trader Joe's. Our freezer and pantry are full of Trader Joe's branded products. We will happily drive 3+ hours to Portland. Though Trader Joe's should consider locating a store next to the LL Bean's factory outlet in Ellsworth Maine, which the the Hancock County seat, commercial center for two coastal counties, and third most affluent county in Maine. Also, it is the gateway to Acadia National Park with its 3+ million US and international visitors each year.
