Checking out the new Adrenalina store

By Tiffany Montgomery

My visit to Tampa last week gave me a chance to see Adrenalina's new store at the International Plaza shopping center, an upscale mall which reminded me a bit of South Coast Plaza.

Adrenalina is the small retailer with three stores that is making an unsolicited bid for PacSun (which PacSun has rejected). Adrenalina's stores feature a wave pool where customers attempt to surf.

When I was there, people were stopping by to watch the happenings in the wave pool, but I did not see anyone shopping or buying anything.

It was a weekday afternoon, however, and there weren't many shoppers anywhere in the mall.

Adrenalina is not the only action sports-inspired store at the shopping center. There are also several other industry stores there.
