What nutritional supplement retailer raised $155 million in its October 2009 IPO?

  1. General Nutrition Centers
  2. Nature's Bounty
  3. Vitamin Shoppe
  4. Whole Foods
Correct!

Vitamin Shoppe raised approximately $155 million in its October 2009 initial public offering. The IPO was notable as it was the first such offering from a traditional, "brick-and-mortar" retailer in almost two full years. The last one had taken place when the farm and construction equipment retailer Titan Machinery sold shares of its stock in December 2007.
