We are a leading multi-channel specialty retailer of nutritional products. In our stores and on our website, we carry one of the most comprehensive retail assortments in the industry including; vitamins, minerals, specialty supplements, herbs, sports nutrition, homeopathic remedies, green living products and beauty aids. We are the second largest in retail sales and one of the fastest growing national Vitamins, Minerals and Supplements (VMS) specialty retailers. Our broad product offering enables us to provide our target customers with a selection of products not readily available at other specialty VMS retailers or mass merchants, such as drugstore chains and supermarkets.
We have more than doubled our net sales from Fiscal 2005 to $1.1 billion in Fiscal 2013 and have achieved positive comparable store sales for 20 consecutive years (prior to which we did not track comparable store sales).
We sell our products through two business segments: retail and direct. In our retail segment, we have opened a total of 370 new stores and acquired 31 from the beginning of Fiscal 2006 through Fiscal 2013. At year-end 2013, we operated 659 stores located in 44 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and Canada, located in high-traffic regional retail centers. In February 2013 we acquired Super Supplements, a 31-store chain headquartered in the Pacific Northwest.
