    Quality products, just highly overpriced. Seems unlikely that they'd fold, though, given their market share. For the GNC crowd. (you guy's don't still shop at GNC do you?)

    From Yahoo Finance

    In September 2003, the Company filed for protection under Chapter 11 of the Federal Bankruptcy Code in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York. In December 2003, the Company sold substantially all of its assets to IdeaSphere, Inc.

    /emote dons flame retardant suit....

    I hit the GNC shop about once a month.The key is to make friends with the management,and ask them to notify you when they are having closeouts on certain items.GNC is great for this because they like to sell off items that are within 4 months of expiration.

    I usually get my Twinlabs PM protien for $9.55 a tub,and Worldwide Rapid Recovery for 99 cents a bottle.The other day,i scored 5 4 packs of Nitro Tech protien shakes for $3.15 a pack.

    They are certainly overpriced,but hit them at the right time,and you can score great deals.

    plus there is always the great gnc supplement scam.no matter what it is if they sell it and you arent satisfied they have to accept all returns.soooo fill the empty protien jugs with chocolate powder and your next one is free. not that i ever would do or condone such a thing but i have heard of it being done.
