I gave my grown niece a 16gb wifi - 3g first generation ipad in March. She left it in her unlocked car and went into the store and when she came back it was stolen (surprise surprise) She loves her ipad so much that she is trying to find another one without paying an arm and leg for it. First of all it was connected to my itunes account so is there anyway that they can get my information when they plug it into itunes I already changed my passwords but is there anything else I should do. Should I change the email address also. And what store still sells the ipad 1? And will it be at a discount? And the question that I probably already know the answer to but will ask anyway is there anyway to get it back?

You've already changed your iTunes password, but I would definitely change the email info, as well. You can look for the original iPad in the Apple Store(online). They usually have refurbs that are priced fairly low. You may also check an AT&T or Verizon store. They also discounted them. Of course, there is always eBay and CL, too.
If you had the "Find my iPhone" app installed, you may be able to locate the device on another iPad, iPhone or computer. That is, if the thief hasn't disabled the feature. Good luck to you.

Sadly, now that it's gone, I don't see what you can do. All you can do is behave differently upon getting a new device. You should definitely use the passcode lock. It's a hassle, but it does keep folks from getting sensitive information if it is stolen. I would also look into getting it insured. If it's stolen again you can have it replaced without having to buy a new one.

You can also sign in to other iPhones and iPads to locate your phone, etc., as well.
