Can anyone vouch for the quality of store brand supplements found at chain stores such as GNC, Vitamin World, or Vitamin Shoppe. I'm specifically looking for comments about the store brand fish oil and such.

Hard to say...as most probably come from 2-3 main distributors who then slap on the private labels for GNC, Walmart or whoever....I would stick to more recognized brands like Carlons or Nordic Naturals for fish oil. Unless someone does independent reserach on each brand, and because lots can vary so much and the FDA does no regulation of people keeping compliant to what their label says...your guess is as good as mine.
