San Francisco Shopping Center is located right downtown, across from the Powell Street cable car turntable. The nine-level shopping center is home to some of the world's largest American chains, including a five-story Nordstrom, a two-level Abercrombie & Fitch, plus almost every name that you can find in numerous malls across the country such as Victoria's Secret, Ann Taylor, Bebe, Nine West etc., including high-end retailers like Kenneth Cole and Club Monaco.
What to buy: A few times a year Nordstrom has big shoes sales, where you can get some good deals.
thanks Rochelle for this suggestion, what a great shopping mall. I just loved it, and ruined myself there lol with the sales!!!
You have here most of the designers, specially for Europeans, some of the brands are more than half price here. My nephews always ask for a few T-shirts when I fly to USA, this time all family got clothes hehehe
The new and improved Ferry Terminal is our latest pride and joy. After years of renovation, it finally reopened last year.
The Ferry Terminal was built in 1896, and by the 1980s and 1990s it was decrepit looking and neglected. Thanks to major rebuilding by the City, the terminal is now an incredibly fun place to browse and eat.
What to buy: The San Francisco Ferry Terminal has shops that sell produce, books, cooking tools, gifts, olive oil, chocolate, meat, bread, wine, cheese, coffee, and a few delis, including the newly opened Japanese deli.
The San Francisco Ferry Terminal is used by Golden Gate Ferries. This is the place you would come to catch the ferry to Sausalito or Larkspur in Marin County.
Even though we spent two weeks in San Francisco, I didn't get a chance to do that much shopping. I think I will have to return just to shop! However, I did make it to a few places. The Crocker Galleria is high-end shopping, but if you're strapped for time, why not shop the best?
If you're not into shopping, at least go to the rooftop garden and take in the view; the mall is covered by a glass dome, which reminded me of Eaton Centre in Toronto.
What to pay: Many of the stores carry expensive designer stuff... fun to browse too, if you're a little low in the cash department.
On Fisherman's Wharf, that was previously a fruit cannery, it has since then been converted into a mall with several fine shops and restaurants....
