Does this town have all the stores that most places have? Like a Walmart, Target a mall etc...

Well, lots of residents were anti-Walmart and kept big box stores out for a long time. Then finally one landowner sold a large parcel adjacent to the town and there now stands a Home Depot and Walmart. At least all the crap is in one spot and the old town area is still it's charming self. If you want shopping malls and chain restaurants, you will need to travel out of town to Gainesville or Manassas. Warrenton has a well-educated palate with a wide array of privately owned eateries representing many ethnicities. The farmer's market is excellent. As it grows, Warrenton will undoubtedly change, but I hope it can retain it's history and character.
