    Personally I hate GNC, there company is a piece of shit. Over priced, under educated staff, minimal selection. They are a all around joke IMO!! I cant believe you wasted you money on that store, why not order online if your "strapped for time?" save yourself some money

    abstrack, tell us how you really feel about gnc. they aint that bad, prices are a little high but the products are decent. we dont sell a lot of proteins and creatines but mostly vitamins. personally i dont give a damn either way.....

    Prices decent??? Give me a break. You can find everyday of the week at allsportsnutrition or 1fast400 or dpsnutrition prices that beat out gnc even with their gold savings and first of the month deals!!

    You want vitamins?? you can get the same vitamins in better quality from NOW Foods . Supplement direct sells there products really cheap!!


    For the money wasted at gnc I could go out and buy myself a month more of protein powder, so why would I waste my time there??

    Do you see any logic in this???

    Getting a pay check seems to be the requirement for most GNC employees, since half of them could tell you the difference from a dumbbell to a barbell.

    Hey abstrack...... breath brother, breath!!!!!!!

    You are right though, the prices suck big donkey di..... , I'll admit, the products themselves aren't half bad but WWWWWWWWAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYYY overpriced especially for the quality. I for one will not, even if there were no other supps store on the planet, walk into another GNC again.

    YOu have turned a fine discussion and good thread into the wrong direction. I think you need to reliterate what you say and how you speak to another member on this board. I will not go into a name calling game or any type of childish banter.


    -- I dont need to prove to you why anybody should listen to my logic or knowledge. I have helped many people and gave out tons of advice, rather the next person took it or not but my helping hand has always been there. I will further to educate all members on how much money they can save from not going to your pathetic store of employment. I will continue to support my board and other supplement companies that are willing to go that extra mile for their members.

    gncguy83, don't tkaeit personally if anyone here badmouths GNC. No one is attacking you, it's just common knowledge that GNC prices are particularly high when compared to most on-line supp sites, and some other supplement stores. I'm sure you have plenty of knowledge to share and don't want to see anyone get banned or not post here anymore.

    Big T thanks but i was cool with all of it . There was no need for his comment and we could have kept things civilized. I have been around long enough to know how to have a conversation or a disagreement on this board, i have earned that respect.

    My point exactly!! Thats why I will continue to point people in the right direction when asked. I dont make it a daily mission but Ted09 asked and I gave him the low down. I just saved him a ton of time and money

    GNC have good products. However, every product they have taste like shit and once I found out you can order stuff online, GNC became a joke...

    GNC is a great for those older women and men who dont know any better...but abstrack is right we need to educate members more about supplements online (allsportsnutrition), and some need to even be educated about supplements period. I have freinds that go to the local GNC for answers and it makes me sick, their products might be decent or comparative, but they do not beat any competitors in any category. And I for one am not for supporting a "money hungary" corporate bussiness that employes people with absolutely no knowlege of supplementation, or nutrition. and fuk NO2...just thought i would say that.

    Fuck N02 indeed. I blew 50 dollars on that shit and got nothing at all. I wish I would have saved it for a down payment on a good prohormone cycle.

    GNCDude- you might want to change your name, It appears gnc doesn't strike a happy chord with most members.

    GNCGUY83- please don't let this discourage you aout posting here. I'm sure you have some sort of knowledge to share wit hthe board and uy all means please do. Like I said, anything negative said about GNC, do not take it personally. So I say, why don't we just let this thread die off already.

    I don't see anything wrong with GNC products... except prices... their rates (even sale) on glutamine, creatine, protein, etc (their own brand and others they carry) are kinda nuts...

    Since vitamins are cheap anywhere, I will buy GNC brand vitamins (E, C, or B5) when they are on sale just for convenience sometimes, but they can usually be found even cheaper elsewhere... I also considered their glucosamine/chondroitin when it was on sale, but found some cheaper online too.
