We all want to be healthy. Besides sport and other physical activities, we need to take care of what we eat and drink. If you don’t know where you can get it, GNC will help you with that. It is one of the top retailers of items for our health, wellbeing, and performance.

The GNC story began with a dream of David Shakarian, an American businessman who wanted to open a shop for healthy food. And he did it - in 1935, he launched a small outlet named Lackzoom. Although the trend of healthy food was changeable at that time, the idea was very successful, and very soon, the next shop was opened. The flourishing was in the 1960s when people started to understand all the value of natural food. Besides prospering, David Shakarian’s creation got the other name – General Nutrition Centers (or simply GNC). Very soon, the company started not only to sell but also produce healthy items - vitamins, food, drinks, mineral products, etc. By the 1980s, GNC operated over 1,000 outlets across the USA.

Most of the GNC shops are located in the shopping centers (around 60%), and about 30% are located in the malls. For today there are more than 4,000 original GNC shops in the US; this number includes 1,200 outlets of Rite Aid located within GNC stores. The company also has franchised points in the USA (1,000 franchise locations) and abroad (franchises in 46 international markets). If you prefer online purchasing, you can make it on the GNC website or the Amazon Marketplace. 

In GNC, you’ll find the best-of-the-best products. Why do we say so? Because for GNC, quality is the key aspect. Before appearing in the stores, all the products go through special testing (150 tests on quality and safety!) – healthy food and drinks, proteins, medicines for productivity-enhancing and weight control, beauty goods, and other general items. The company cooperates with authoritative experts and research institutes to bring the customers what they deserve, and they deserve the best. The variety of products’ trademarks is various – it includes exclusive GNC brands (like Nutra) and the famous national ones.

For its clients, GNC has special loyalty programs named myGNC Rewards and myGNC PRO Access. The first allows earning points when you buy something in GNC physical stores, through e-platform or GNC Live Well app, and then you can turn them into Cash Back Rewards.
