New Season's 7 vs Wildoats 4 23.Sep.2004 16:52

Brian Rohten brianrohten@newtreasons.fu

I really would'nt worry about picketing wildoats or bothering with any form of boycott. We NEW SEASON'S are the new natural food chain in town and we are going to make tofu scramble and send them packing back to Colorado, although I haven't figured what to do about all the local workers that will be laid off. Guess I'll just have to open more and more stores for them to work at, although then more businesses will be forced out of business.Oh well that's the price of being "The freindliest Store In Town". We just announced our 7th store out in Cedar Hills.I'm opening this one because the bike ride to seven corners is to short from my Mt Tabor retreat, so I thought I could get more exercise riding over to cedar hills. Plus Wildoats is trying to open a super store out there and my boss Mr Amy wants them buried. But now Wholefoods is moving in, too close to our seven corners store up on Sandy in the Hollywood District. Maybe it's time for us to go public and start moving out of Portland,USA here we come "The Friendliest Store In America".Let's see the union try and take us on now, you remember what we did to the Portland IWW when they tried organizing at Nature's, that right we sold it to GNC...hahahaha....Yours/ Brian Rohten
