California-based West Marine, the nation’s largest specialty retailer of boating supplies and accessories, will open its first Virginia flagship store in Virginia Beach with a long weekend of special events on Sept 12-15. The store will be in the Loehmann’s Plaza Shopping Center at 4000 Virginia Beach Blvd., just east of Pembroke.

The new 23,000-square-foot flagship store is larger than three current West Marine locations in Norfolk and Virginia Beach combined. They are each closing.



The new store will have nearly 100 marine electronics on display, an engine parts counter staffed by specialists, an assortment of watersports products, plus footwear and casual and technical apparel.



Store Manager Annette Renfro leads the staff of 34.
