Since we have members from all over, I thought I'd reach out and for names and locations of local chains of vitamin/supplement stores through-out the country.
I am primarily looking for places that have 5 or more related stores.
Thanks in advance.
Feel free to email me with ideas:

Steve, please get Netrition.com from Albany NY to carry DS Please!!!!!
We have been trying, to no avail. Put in a request!
..and that goes for any other retailers that don't carry us. If you would actually order our stuff from them(or buy direct as in a brick and mortar store) let them know. We'd appreciate it, and they (in theory and in hope) would appreciate the chance to keep more of your business. So if you choose one retailer over another because you want to get our stuff, politely let them know.
Does Max Muscle carry your stuff ? I'm sure they'd be happ to carry it once they see the potential of DS products and they definitely need to diversify their stores so it would be a great move for them too. Same could be said of Vitamin World.
BTW, will you guys have Melting Point in a Vitamin Shoppe ? The manager is cool with me and she gives me her 25% discount so I'd get a great deal on that.
VS has not yet picked up MP.
I am hopeful that we will be in VW by the summer.
As to Max Muscle, that is a weird situation, as each store seems to make independent purchasing decisions.
Have you all ever been in contact with AAFES? Army Air Force Exchange Services? (Hosted on every Army/Airforce Base in the World)

Will any Vitamin Shoppe carry the entire DS line? My local one, and one in another state I go to sometimes, have only ever had Lean Xtreme in stock. I plan on giving the local manager the empty bottle of GXR when I am done with it so he can see if he can get it based on the UPC number.
Though I doubt they'd ever be able to have prices anything near as low as online places...
You guys BETTER! hit up the Vitamin Shoppes in Glendale, CA and Pasadena, CA. Two big stores there.
That makes no sense. VS JUST got their first shipment of Lean Xtreme -- not have had it until around now.Originally Posted by methusaleh
All stores should now have LX, Basic Cuts, ActivaTe, XCEED, and GXR.
Again, we should be in ALL Vitamin Shoppes.Originally Posted by Rage (SoCal)
Well, then I'm not sure what it means (franchise stores, perhaps?), but LXT has been at the Boardman, Ohio, and Auburn, Mass., stores for at least a month now.
Thats a great idea.Originally Posted by DAdams91982

VS doesn't do franchise stores, brother.. Some stores get orders, others you need to special order it.. The Cambridge store has most of DS' products except LX and MP, which I've been harassing corporate about..Originally Posted by methusaleh
If you'd like, you could tell me when they hit and I'll go take pics for you if I can pull it off.
Maybe they don't know about the worldwide distribution possibilities and the amount of customers that visit AAFES stores. I can't count how many people drop money on MuscleTech products in those stores.Originally Posted by DAdams91982
I only buy stuff at GNC, but only the "going out of date" sale items. 99% of my supps are over the 'net.
I'll email GNC HQ. Have you had any success with them???
