GNC To Replace Snappy’s On College Avenue

A permit in the window of what was once Snappy’s at 200 E. College Ave. confirms that GNC will move in on the corner of College Avenue and Pugh Street. While no opening date has been confirmed as of now, the permit was issued on Tuesday by the State College Borough.

GNC permit

GNC is a Pittsburgh-based health and wellness product company that specializes in “vitamins, minerals, and herbal supplement products, sports nutrition products and diet products,” according to its official website. There are three other GNC locations in State College — one in the Nittany Mall, one in Hills Plaza on South Atherton Street and the final one on North Atherton Street in North Atherton Place by Wal-Mart.

John Wilson, State College Borough zoning officer, could confirm that GNC is in fact replacing Snappy’s, as he issued the permit a couple weeks ago. He can not confirm when the store is opening because it is up to the discretion of the store, but it has one year to complete any construction under the permit.

Snappy’s closed in September after the rent became unaffordable.
