Newark, New Jersey: A national chain of health stores will be opening another Essex County location.
GNC, which stands for General Nutrition Center, is planning a new store for 186 Market Street, between Broad Street and Mulberry Street, at the center of Downtown Newark. City records show that Mariano Pelliza and Naftali Lichtenstein are seeking approval to modify the building's front facade from the Newark Landmarks and Historic Preservation Commission during its meeting tonight at City Hall. The space was previously occupied by Monet Fashions.
There are currently local GNC locations in Bloomfield, the Ironbound, Livingston, Short Hills, Verona, West Caldwell, and West Orange.
