Comments:Whole Foods and Trader Joe's are located side by side and compete on Worcester Road (Rt. 9)in Framingham, MA. They have both been there for many years. Athough there is some retail overlap the two stores are different. It is far less competition than two grocery stores close together and we are accustom to that. It will actually help business. I don't often shop at Whole Foods because of the location, but it would be worth the trip for both Whole Foods and Trader Joe's.
