NEW YORK, July 5, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Grandparents.com (OTCQB: GPCM) and its benefits organization, the American Grandparents Association (AGA), announced today an exclusive relationship with Thorne Research, the country's leading nutritional supplement manufacturer.
This venture offers grandparents.com users and AGA members a special discount on all Thorne Research nutritional supplement products because of both companies' commitment to senior health. The relationship begins with the special offer and continues to add savings with additional rebates when the AGA Grand Card is launched in the second half of 2016.
"This partnership will create meaningful value for consumers," according to AGA Chairman and CEO Steve Leber.
