Steep Discounts at GNC in Old Town Before Closing Next Month

The Old Town GNC is closing next month, and the store has discounts on nearly everything inside until then.

The nutrition store at 711 King Street is scheduled to close on Wednesday, Feb. 19, according to staff. GNC offers a variety of food, snacks and supplements, with an athletic focus.

An employee said that some products throughout the store are marked as 75% off, while the rest are 50% off.

GNC stores nationwide have been scaling back over the last year, with 700-900 scheduled to close by the end of 2020. Company leadership blamed the closures on declining foot traffic.

The GNC in Old Town opened in 2017. Before that the location had been a frozen yogurt shop and, before that, a photography studio.

There is another GNC in Alexandria at 4651 Duke Street, where staff said they currently have no plans to close.
