Walmart's craft/sewing section should have it.

Try CVS or RiteAid and any yard goods store, anything that sells sewing supplies and I am sure you can get one much cheaper than at GNC .Don't go to the fitness section look where they sell, needles, thread and other sewing supplies.

You probably can find a sewing kit that includes a measuring tape at the dollar store.

Just wanted to add for gals who happen to be too big for a standard measuring tape (usually 60 inches) - a quilter's measuring tape goes to 120 inches (Walmart, JoAnn Fabrics, Hancock Fabrics, Hobby Lobby, Michael's - probably most craft and sewing shops).

If you'd like an even longer measuring tape, the Amplestuff website might have something longer.
