VIRGINIA BEACH, Va., Aug. 1, 2016 – L.L.Bean recently opened its third Virginia store at Lynnhaven Mall, the cornerstone of Virginia Beach shopping. KBE Building Corporation (KBE) served as General Contractor for the renovation project designed by Cuhaci & Peterson and located at 701 Lynnhaven Parkway in Virginia Beach.

The 17,138 square-foot space features an assortment of active and casual apparel and footwear for men and women, as well as outdoor lifestyle gear including hiking, fly-fishing, kayaking and camping equipment.
