on my first visit to GNC I asked the sales associate if they carried a particular flavor protein powder as I was unable to find it in the store myself. After taking the time to look he told me they did not have any in stock.
I asked him if he could recommend something similar with close to the same ingredients, grams of protein, sugar, carbs and most important a low calorie count. He gave me the GNC brand and told me the only difference was the name. After getting home and taking a closer look at its contents I realized that it was not in any way similar to what I was looking for but I decided that I would give GNC another chance. On my second visit I asked the same sales associate for another specific product and he tells me that they do not carry it.
I go on my way and try to find a product that is similar in nature to that of what I was looking for. While looking for something similar I found the product that I was looking for in the first place and when I told the sales associate I had found it his response was, "you better buy all of them because they were ordered my accident". I bought the product and left. A third time I called the store ahead of time to see if they had the product I was looking for and the sales associate told me they had just received a shipment and they had plenty in stock.
When I arrived at the store there was a sign on the door that said it was closed but would reopen in 5 minutes. After waiting for 10 minutes outside the store it finally reopens and I go inside to make my purchase only to find the shelf where the product I needed to be empty. When I asked the cashier for the product she responded with, I have the product in the back but I don't want to unpack the boxes so I will call another location and see if they have it on the shelf.
I left GNC furious and I will never buy another product from there again.
