(CNN/WETM) – The vitamin and supplement store, GNC, announced it will close up to 900 stores in mall locations.
Officials confirmed the move Monday during a second-quarter earnings call with analysts. The company’s Chief Financial Officer say they would likely be cutting the number of stores in malls by half.
GNC has about 4,100 locations in the U.S.
There are 10 GNC locations in the Twin Tiers, nine of which are located inside Rite Aid stores. The only standalone location is inside the Arnot Mall in Big Flats.
Company records show that nearly 200 stores have already closed during the first six months of 2019.
