get to know us

from the time we opened our first store in 1977, our focus has been to help people achieve their health and wellness goals. every body matters is not just our tagline; it's our mantra. it communicates our focus on helping to make the world healthier, one life at a time.

the Vitamin Shoppe® operates over 650 stores in the United States and Canada, and we continue to expanded internationally. however success for us is not measured by how many stores we open: our goal is to make a healthy difference in people's lives every day and travel with each customer on their journey to wellness.
