T-Shirt Warehouse: Shopping at the beach
This was a pretty good store full of all the gifts from the beach you could want to bring home to someone for a good price. Located on Altantic Avenue aound 8th to 12th street, I forget, sorry. If your heading north on Atlantic Ave it will be on your left.

There are tons of malls in the area. The best ones are probably MacArthur Mall in Norfolk, Lynnhaven Mall in Virginia Beach, and Greenbrier Mall in Chesapeake. Don't bother going to Pembroke and Military Circle Mall. There's not a whole lot going on there and do not meet the general public's expectations of a standard mall.
170 stores!: Lynnhaven Mall
The Lynnhaven Mall is only about a 20 minute bus drive from Atlantic Avenue. Has over 170 stores, including JC Penny, GAP, Banana Republic, Lord and Taylor, Hecht's and a Disney Store.
Has quite a large food court also.
Open Monday - Saturday 10am-9.30pm
Sunday noon - 6pm
If you want to and you are a keen shopaholic there is another mall before reaching Lynnhaven called Hilltop so you could hop off the bus there and then hop back on to go to Lynnhaven.
