Bronstein, Gewirtz & Grossman, LLC Announces That A Class Action Has Been Filed Against Vitamin Shoppe, Inc.

Stocks in this article: VSI

NEW YORK, May 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Attorney Advertising -- Bronstein, Gewirtz & Grossman, LLC announces that a class action law suit was filed in the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey on behalf of purchasers of Vitamin Shoppe, Inc. ("Vitamin Shoppe" or the "Company") (NYSE: VSI) common stock between May 8,  2012  and February 25, 2013 inclusive (the "Class Period").  The complaint charges Vitamin Shoppe and certain of its officers and directors with violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.

The complaint alleges that during the Class Period, defendants issued materially false and misleading statements and omitted materially relevant facts regarding the Company's operations, business trends and same-store sales trends. Specifically, defendants failed to disclose that: (1) Vitamin Shoppe's business was being negatively impacted by competition from on-line retailers which were significantly reducing prices on popular supplements; (2) GNC's new discount program was negatively impacting the Company's sales growth; (3) the Company was experiencing declining same-store sales trends.  As a result of the aforementioned, Vitamin Shoppe stock traded at artificially inflated prices, enabling Company insiders to sell more than $30 million of their Vitamin Shoppe common stock at inflated prices during the Class Period.

No Class has yet been certified in the above action. If you wish to review a copy of the Complaint, to discuss this action, or have any questions, please contact Peretz Bronstein of Bronstein, Gewirtz & Grossman, LLC at 212-697-6484 or via email info@bgandg.com.
