Company sees retail habit change as barometer - gas prices go up, major

market trend to stay home, shop online

REDMOND, Wash., July 3 /PRNewswire/ -- VitaminLife, a leading vitamin and natural products Internet retailer offering over 30,000 supplements at savings up to 50% today announced that the company has observed a 40% sales increase in the last 2 quarters of 2008 as people change shopping habits to offset today's high fuel costs.

According to the AAAFuelGauge Survey, the average price of regular unleaded gasoline (July 1, 2008) is now averaging $4.087 a gallon compared to $2.957 a year ago. For further information on average fuel pricing go to AAA.com. "We are seeing changes in buying trends as fuel costs rise," said Dean South, president of VitaminLife. "It used to be that we would see a majority of our sales coming from remote places across the globe and nationally, a higher percentage from rural areas of the U.S. Today we see a big surge in the U.S. of online orders from major metropolitan areas. People have simply decided to drive less. The cost of fuel has surpassed the price of shipping, and we see this trend as an early barometer for changing consumer buying behavior."

Since the company's beginning, VitaminLife routinely ships products all over the world, sending products throughout Europe, Middle East, Asia, even supplying vitamins and natural products to soldiers stationed in Iraq and Afghanistan. The mix is now changing as people get out of their SUVs and order online to offset fuel costs.

"What I really appreciate is that I can order online once and then get what I need, from a respected vendor that offers the largest selection available," said Karmen Spencer, a regular VitaminLife customer in Orange County, Californ
