    HELP -- Stores


    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.

    ..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.

    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...

    That makes no sense. VS JUST got their first shipment of Lean Xtreme -- not have had it until around now.

    All stores should now have LX, Basic Cuts, ActivaTe, XCEED, and GXR.

    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.

    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..

    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.

    I only buy stuff at GNC, but only the "going out of date" sale items. 99% of my supps are over the 'net.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???

    The "manager's specials" shelf. I know it well. They always try and get me to buy their membership card and I always tell them the same thing: "Your prices are outrageous and the only things I buy here come from your manager's specials shelf."

    Yeah, but even the Gold Card can pay for itself when you only buy from the managers shelf.

    Example - I got a bottle of Skulpt for $8 - was $10 on the managers table.
    I'm sure I've bought enough things like that to add up to more than the $20 or whatever it costs for a year.

    When is RR due out in stores? VS doesn't carry RXT yet, so I'm hoping that they pick up RR.

    I have sending a bunch of people to the site to read up on the NHA stack...but its hard to sell when you only have the ActivaTe

    Gotta Get it in There!

    Around here, we have:
    Vitamin World,
    High-Health Supermart

    Then some stores that have lots of supplements:
    Wild Oats Natural Marketplace,
    Sprouts (probably owned by the same people as Wild Oats, and Henry's)

    I have to give another vote to AAFES if you guys can get your stuff in their stores. This would be a deal worth quite a bit. Like said above I don't know how many soldiers I've seen drop too much money on Muscletech over the years.

    We are looking into it. One problem from what I can tell, is that they buy MT because that is one of the few names that they know, and it is veiwed as the best.

    around boston there are these supplement stores/healthy food restaurants called "Knowfat" popping up. They have a pretty decent supplement selection and even carry ph/ps, you might want to give them a try as they seem to be a growing biz.

    So very true... that is why they carry such.. .cause the only know a few brands... and have very limited shelf space.... so that is why I encourage Any service member to go to their website in the comments section, and send them one requesting DS.
