|Rule:||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|
Comments:I am in full agreement that Whole Foods should divest itself of Wild Oats in order that a Trader Joe's can be built in Portland. Portland is frequently used by consumer research groups as a "pure" sampleing of American culture and commerce. Trader Joe's also offers wholesome food to the masses at a more attractive price than its rival Whole Foods.
