General Nutrition Corporation (GNC) will be repositioning their store in the West Broad Street retail market near Westland Mall this summer. Following many successful years inside Westland Mall, GNC is adapting to the changing retail environment along West Broad Street. While the new Hollywood Casino is bringing plenty of excitement and new activity to West Broad Street for its grand opening this Fall, it hasn’t yet been the boon needed to reinvigorate Westland Mall. GNC, wanting to retain its loyal customers in the area, sought a new location to better serve its customers and relied on Andrew Feinblatt of Cincinnati-based OnSiteRetail Group to identify and secure the new location. The chain’s new 1,500 square foot store will be located in West Highland Plaza, where GNC will join Radio Shack and GameStop. GNC is anticipating an August 2012 opening.
GNC Holdings, Inc., headquartered in Pittsburgh, Pa., is a leading global specialty retailer of health and wellness products, including vitamins, minerals, and herbal supplement products, sports nutrition products and diet products, and trades on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol “GNC.” As of December 31, 2011, GNC has more than 7,600 locations, of which more than 5,900 retail locations are in the United States and franchise operations in 53 countries.
