"We are excited about extending our e-commerce agreement with GSI and expanding our relationship to include interactive marketing services."

In addition to e-commerce services, the agreement names GSI's digital agency, gsi interactive(SM), as GNC's digital agency of record and adds a full complement of marketing services that include site usability testing, paid search marketing, comparison shopping engines, affiliate marketing, display advertising, emerging media, and e-mail services powered by e-Dialog, GSI's e-mail marketing subsidiary.

"This long-term, multiyear, and expanded agreement speaks to the success of the relationship and to the opportunity in front of us for continued growth."

GNC launched its online store on GSI's e-commerce platform in the fourth quarter of 2005. Online sales have since become an important channel for GNC as well as a valuable extension of its brand.
