NUTRISHOP® Now Open for Business at Ellsworth Air Force Base

New store to serve military members and their families while aiming to help them get healthy and fit for life

Ellsworth Air Force Base, September 20, 2021 – Military veteran/Nutrishop Rapid City, S.D. franchisee Gunnar Swanson is excited to announce that his newest Nutrishop location has officially opened inside the Base Exchange at Ellsworth Air Force Base. On Wednesday, Sept. 22, the new store will host a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 10 a.m. and a special grand opening event from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. offering prizes and discounts.

“We have always had so many military personnel and their families coming into Nutrishop Rapid City, so it was a no-brainer to open a shop right there on the base so our military personnel could get everything they need without having to travel off base,” said Swanson, who served in the Army National Guard in Iraq in the early 2000s. “Being a military veteran myself, I know what it means to serve our country and being able to open this shop on the Ellsworth Air Force Base is a great opportunity for us to serve those who serve and their families.”

Swanson’s business partner, Chris Aid, will be managing the new location but Swanson will definitely be spending time there as well. Both Swanson and Aid said they have always had a passion for health and fitness. Both also have prior history as gym managers and personal trainers.

Swanson opened his first Nutrishop store in Rapid City three years ago and has thoroughly enjoyed having the ability to help people reach their health and wellness goals through the products and services Nutrishop offers, including guaranteed low prices on top-industry brands and a vast array of exclusive products, from protein powders, thermogenics, and vitamins to nootropics, immune-support products, pre-workouts and more. In addition, Nutrishop offers free services like body composition analysis, meal plans, nutritional education and coaching, body transformation challenges, and more.

“Nutrishop has always been a ‘results-driven company,’” Swanson said. “I truly believe in our incredible products, but it’s the relationships we build with our customers, our expertise and knowledge, and our many free services that truly separate us from any other nutrition store out there.”

Swanson said he believes the InBody analysis scan, which measures lean muscle, body fat, water, and bone, quite accurately, and body transformation challenges will be great opportunities for sections within the Ellsworth community to get even healthier and more fit and provide the motivation needed to stick to it.

“We can even provide customized meal and supplement plans to ensure our customers get the best possible results from their efforts,” he said. “We were fortunate enough to be offered the location at the Base Exchange, and we really look forward to serving our servicemen and women and helping them perform their best.”
