Auburn wants Trader Joe’s

I think that Trader Joe’s should move to Auburn. Since they sell an abundance of natural foods, they wouldn’t cause the shutting down of many other stores because there are not a lot of other natural food stores in this area. On the other hand, if Wal-Mart were to move here, they would cause the shutting down of a lot of other stores. If Trader Joe’s were to move to Auburn, they wouldn’t have to build a whole new building because of their size. There is also a possibility that they could move to what used to be 84 Lumber off of Dry Creek Road and Highway 49. It would be a good location because it would be right off the highway. If all of this were to happen, I think that the people of Auburn would be very satisfied. To prove this theory, I questioned some friends and family, and out of 20 only three of them said that they would rather have a Wal-Mart over Trader Joe’s. So I think that it would be in the best interest for us, the people of Auburn, to agree to have a Trader Joe’s instead of a Wal-Mart. JULIA DONALDSON, student, Auburn
