I liked this little vitamin place. I never went there before but thought Id check it out after I saw gnc prices and got helped by this dude who didnt know the difference between the protiens and why some cost more that others. But all the tubs said like the same thing. My older brother kept talking about buying his protein here because its cheaper and has more flavors and stuff and hes bulked up in the past 4 monthes. But the stuff I found was like 16 bucks cheaper than the on I was looking at gnc and the lady here told me about all the stuff in it. The lady new more about this stuff than any of the dudes i work out with! Like she new what one was better for me because I want to bulk up quick. But she was able to tell me about muscle repair and how some have more creatine than other ones. I thought it was hella cool she knew more about all the stuff and helped me find a really good one for me without picking the most expensive one and just talking it up. Im gonna keep going to the Walnut Creek store because the woman knows what she is talking about and doesnt try to upsale me all kinds and im thinking they dont get commision on body building stuff which some places do for just bodybuilding products. So really just good help and good prices.

Great people, great prices, great product. I especially like the regular sales on top of their regularly great prices. Have been a customer for over three years (right after they moved to the "new" location and will continue to patronize them. (By the way Joseph C, the phrase is "Pain in the arse" not "PEST IN THE ARSE!"...You are one obnoxious yelling punk dude. You may want to take a freshman English class- high school that is!)-

The so-called "helpful" and "sweet" manageress there is an out-and-out FREAK who can't take NO for an answer! "Can I help you find something?" she accosts robotically as soon as I step in the door. "No thanks," I reply, "just browsing." On second thought I ask to be directed to shampoos. "Middle aisle," she says. "Thank you." So I check out the shampoos and then browse elsewhere. "Can I help you find something," she intrudes, snidely adding, "the shampoo isn't over there"(where I'm browsing, as if I'm incapable of figuring THAT out on my own). "No thanks," I reply, AGAIN, "I'm just getting the lay of the land and seeing where things are. It's a mind-boggling selection." "That's a good thing, isn't it?" she says, turning pseudo-intellectual with what she most mistakenly THINKS is a "clever" comeback, but which just comes off as even more irksome. I'm in a rear corner of the store browsing further when she intrudes overtly with an emphatic, "Excuse me, sir," going quickly in-and-out of a rear stock room's "employees only" door. Back to my browsing at another aisle, where she joins me, climbing a step-ladder nearby. "Can I help you find something, sir?" she asks me for yet a THIRD freakin' time. If there's one thing I hate it's for clerk flunkys to start "sir"-ing me with that irritating hypocritically "polite" tone! "Madame," I finally ask her in turn, exasperated, "do you wish me to shop or not?" "It's my job to 'help' customers find what they want," she says--STILL not taking my blatant and not-so-subtle hint of repeatedly turning down her offers of "help": IF I NEED OR WANT YOUR "HELP" I'LL BLOODY WELL ASK FOR IT, FOR GOD'S SAKE! Finally I renege briefly. "Do you have bee pollen granules?" No, just pills, explaining something about their suppliers when another lady customer comes in, requesting help but saying there's no hurry. "That's all right," this smart-alecky manageress cracks, "he doesn't want my 'help' anyway. I think I'm pestering him." PESTERING is the year's understatement! This female FREAK's customer "service" borders on out-and-out BADGERING. At that last-straw display of outright RUDENESS I walked straight out the door never to return. So no, I most definitely will NOT "be back." And folks, being an all-natural classic physique bodybuilder I spend upwards of a hundred bucks or more a pop at health food shops, and in this instance I was shopping for a place nearer my immediate neighborhood. So the owners of this chain should know: this FREAK just cost this franchise outlet potentially several THOUSANDS of dollars of single-customer business! And this supposedly "helpful" manageress sorely needs to learn: once a customer says "no thanks" multiple times, they MEAN just that, "no thanks," SO LEAVE THEM THE F*** ALONE SO THEY CAN SHOP IN PEACE! Meanwhile, it's back to GNC, where the clerks at least have the fukin' GOOD SENSE to leave customers alone to shop in peace once they decline any default offers of "help."

I have been in a number of times...great prices (compare), very helpful manager, huge selection for such a small location, special orders were no problem. "I'll be back!"

I highly recommend visiting Vitamin Adventure over Whole Foods or the Elephant Pharmacy. The manager is so sweet and helpful and prices are unbeatable.

Vitamin Adventure is in a little shopping center right across the street from Kaiser. I usually come here to buy vitamins because they have a good variety and usually have great sales too. They also sell things like protein bars and power bars, generic brands as well as more well known ones.
