About GNC, History and Headquarters Information


GNC was founded in the year 1935. The company has been active for over 84 years now. The founder of the company was David Shakarian. The company has its origins back in the day when the founder of the company had opened a small health food store called Lackzoom, in the city of Pittsburg, Pennsylvania, USA. The first-day earnings of the store were $35. With the next few months, the growth of the company was so tremendous that a second store was opened in the next six months only. But, due to the Ohio River Flood happened in the year 1937, on St. Patrick’s Day, both of the stores had been wiped out as well. The stores were re-opened and b the year 1941, the company had seven stores under its name.

During WWII, the company operated as a mail-order business store, where the customers would send the company their cheques and the stores will ship them the product, at no additional shipping costs. During the 1960s, the company had significantly expanded and also changed the company’s name as well, to GNC or General Nutrition Centres. The founder of the company had passed away in the year 1984. In the year 1999, the company was acquired by Numico, which was again sold to Apollo Management in the year 2003. The company was again taken over by the Ontario Teachers Pension Plan and Ares Management, in the year 2007. The company had become a limited public entity in the year 2011. As of the year 2018, 40 per cent share of the company was acquired by Harbin Pharmaceutical Group Holding Company. The headquarters of the company is based in 300 Sixth Avenue 2nd Floor. The name of the place is Pittsburgh, while the name of the state is Pennsylvania, USA. The pin code of the area is 15222.

    I have been for the entire month of December for my 20.78 refund. I have had to file a police report, file a report with consumer protection, Department of Regulation and Compliance. This is aweful I will never shop at GNC. I have be disreepcted by customer service and no one know how to reach leadership. I will never ever shop here again You do steal from your customer that put food on your table. I use to shop here all the and refer people but no one more doing business with businesses that take mistreat customers. No one should have to got through these measure.

  • Elda Rodriguez says:

    My comment is that I was overcharged & I’m very unhappy I got a not so responsive answer from the young man in the store. With his I don’t care attitude! Meanwhile I’ve been a customer 4 a long time

  • Sara says:

    I would like to speak to someone about one of your employees at the GNC store near my house. Please contact me.

  • Gabrielle says:

    I literally ordered $67+ worth of product almost a year ago from GNC and have yet to send my order. I’ve spoken to over 10 people (not from America) and somehow, the line magically “hangs up” in the middle of them processing my order and I will have to start the whole process of calling/explaining all over again to another agent who will hang up on me. This has happened every time I have called GNC. GNC has scammed me out of my money and is refusing to refund me or give me the product I ordered. I really did trust GNC and will continue with a lawsuit if that is what I have to do. Truly upset.

    hi,can i open gnc authorize store for nepal.

  • SCC says:

    My husband received a GNC product in the mail today that he did not order from the store at Easton Towne Center in Columbus, OH. Apparently when he was in the store in October (its now January) the salesman signed him up to receive this $77 product every 3 months without his knowledge, even entering his credit card number. Today my husband spent 2.5 hours of his time dealing with this issue, contacting customer service (talking to people in another country that he couldn’t understand), his credit card company, and driving to another GNC store that he typically goes to, to return this product that he never signed up for and doesn’t even take. So frustrating. GNC should be paying him for his time. Thank you to the GNC in Lewis Center for helping to resolve this issue.

  • Vickie says:

    We love GNC products but every time we visit the store in Southern Pines, NC the employees leave notes on the door saying be right back and never come back. The door is always locked even when the sign says open. This has happened about 4 out of 5 visits to the store.

  • Ss says:

    The North Augusta district manager is cutting peoples hours because they “can’t sell pro subscriptions”. it is an optional purchase the employees shouldn’t have to worry about there livelihoods because some either doesn’t want a pro subscription or already has one it’s unrealistic and unnecessary.

  • Robert says:

    My child works for GNC in Florida and has been for the last several months. They have worked very hard for your company, often working in a managing capacity by trng new employees wo addl compensation, and coming in when others do not report for their shift (as is the case these days).

    I was informed by them this evening after a “managerial shift” they were now required to wear red polo shirts and had to pay for them themselves!

    I think that is terrible to ask the employees to do that ( especially for those that show up for work) and I am extremely unhappy as to the way they are being treated by GNC.

    Thought someone in corporate should know this, unless you already were already aware.

  • Michael Morgan says:

    Hi. I’m a contractor working in New York. A couple days ago a longtime client told me about an anonymous group of doctors and lawyers who have been doing studies showing a nearly hundred percent success rate treating covid patients with otc vitamins and supplements.

    She said they’re treating people under the radar to avoid getting punished…for using vitamins as treatment for people with covid.

    I thought, well that’s interesting and if that’s true, you would be able to see an uptick in sales of those kinds of products.

    So I’m curious to know if you’d heard of this group — INTIME — handing out fliers in and around the city. Would you have any way to test the accuracy of these claims?

    And if you noticed any unusual surge recently in vitamin orders from your customers, especially in areas where the virus cases is falling off.

    I appreciate any insights you might be able to share. Thanks.


  • SB says:

    I recently worked for your GNC location on Scottsdale and Shea, Arizona the manager’s name is Diego.
    I had to resign my position because I realized there was theft going on in the store and no one would talk to me about it including the regional / Rob I tried to call many times. I am also a paralegal and I think you should look into this.

    Also many customer’s came in to the store and notified me that they signed up for pro membership months and months ago, over 6 months and never received their pro boxes or appropriate points promised by the program, I was told by the Manager Diego not to mention the boxes or respond to the customers letting them know any exact time to expect them.

    The manager continued to tell people we were out of stock of product that was listed on the shipping received sheets, I was not allowed to check in to until after the other guy he hired and himself opened them first.

    At the end I did see copies that in fact we should have them in the store, however they were never accounted for, several times the manager Diego stayed clocked in, it showed when I was closing and was clocking out. He was getting paid for hours mostly overtime when he was not even there.

    He also would schedule the other employee Eric for times and Eric would simply leave the store.

    When I started to inquire what was going on, especially hundred dollar bills hidden in the 20 dollar bills causing variances over at minimum 150 dollars, I was handed a sheet to sign for the deposits I did working only 2 hours to close the store and do the night deposits.

    I witnessed the other employee Eric telling customers he simply didn’t have change so he could keep the additional amounts.

    Having been a bookkeeper in the past and having a Master’s degree someone should look into this store.

  • Moses Medina President of Vive Naturals says:

    Your buyer was on RangeMe viewing my all natural organic hair regrowth brand Vive Naturals. I left my toll free number on your voicemail but here it is: (844) 228-9848 I would do anything to be placed on your shelf of the healthy conscious customer your company attracts. We are currently being sold in Mom and pop all natural health and nutrition stores in eighteen states currently. Would love a chance to make that in all your 500 plus locations nationwide.
