Please visit us to see the full selection.

We are now open at Hilltop East Shopping Center and are thrilled to be a part of the Virginia Beach community!  Come by and see us for superior service, selection, and a chance to really get a feel for our products from a staff who know and go outdoors.

In Virginia Beach we’re building on the same legacy of outdoor retail that GOPC has cultivated since 1972. A legacy of integrity. A legacy of treating others the way we would want to be treated. A legacy of putting the customer first. In a world of big-box shops and online retailers, GOPC is a breath of fresh air for both customers and staff. We are still a human enterprise where people matter.
