Yes. Don't worry, Norfolk will have everything Va. Beach has. I'm just starting with Va. Beach because I have the most work to do in here.

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

Not too terribly much is going on at the mall that I am aware of. A&M is the newest fashion retailer to locate here. Although I don't know much about them they are supposed to offer cutting edge fashions at great prices. The old Chi-Chis outside the mall is being converted into a Caberras Italian Grill. I noticed it the other day and things are progressing relatively fast. Oh, and the Lord and Taylor store is still empty but hopefully they are working on finding a new tenant. I heard once they will probably break up that space for several smaller ones.

A&M is terrible. I thought that it would be good from the media but for men its just plain terrible.

The new Express for men just opened back up. It's ok, but nothing great.

I think we need a Holister. I know we have a lot of surf shops but I still think it would do well here. AF has jumped their prices up recently. Prices upwards of 80-90 duckets for a pair of jeans. I dont mind paying that much for a pair of Seven's or something designer, but for garbage like AF is just plain ignorant. Holister resembles AF a bit, but with lower prices.

I hate going to Norfolk just to buy clothes other than the casual WRV stuff.

A&M? Do you mean H&M? The store right next to the new express studio? I think it's great...of course just a matter of taste, but most of the stuff they have there appeals to me. the new express is pretty good as well, but usually too expensive..you can get just about the same level of quality next door for cheaper.

I don't mind cheaper by any means provided the quality is there. Usually I try to buy on sale at Banana Republic but I should check out these other stores.

From an article posted in the Westin and TC threads: "In related news, Gerald S. Divaris, Town Centerís leasing agent, announced Tuesday that Brooks Brothers will move into Town Center near The Cheesecake Factory. The store is scheduled to open at the corner of Central Park and Market streets by spring 2006."

I'm kinda a retail layman so can anyone tell me what Brooks Brothers is and what type of market they cater too?

Upscale men's clothing specifically suits and business casual. Kinda like the suit department at Nordstrom or local men's retailer B. Croft & Bull. Men's Warehouse (at TC) and S&K (in Pembroke) cater to mid-scale shoppers. Their main competitor is JCPenney, so Brooks Brothers shouldn't affect them too much.
