If you have never shopped at a Nordstrom's, then you are seriously missing out. It has the most gracious like hospitality customer service anywhere. If they don't go out of their way in customer service for you, then you are not at Nordstroms!

I come here because of the service and because they carry good men's clothing products. Because of the quality, the clothes are a good buy, even though the price is a bit more than the competition. But in the end it's just another department store.

Yes, there are what seems like a zillions shops in this area, and in the Westfield Mall where Nordstrom is nestled, a bit more upscale retail opportunities. But the immaculate, ever superior service shopping experience of this retail establishment stands above in all ways. A good place to shop, a good place to walk around see what's in style, marvel...

This store is great if you have enough money to afford to buy anything and I am not that man. A huge store.

The Nordstrom offers shopping for all styles and all budget levels. I lived the designer level where they help you in a private shopper experience.

Would have given a zero, but wasn't an option available. My sister in law ordered boots for delivery at the beginning of December - supposed to arrive in a few days. Finally on December -6, they called to say not available and then magically found a pair and would ship express (they said 9 days -if that's express, wonder what... More

I enjoyed doing some shopping at the multiple floor Nordstrom at Union Square in San Francisco. Its an upscale department store. It is known for good service. I went in December to do some holiday shopping.

Excellent value clothes similar to TKMaxx and Primark but better - shoes, shirts, jeans - all designer labels at around 50% off. Worth a look around. I grabbed some great bargains.

Staying in SoMa

Neighbourhood Profile
South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able to do more than just business - museums, top quality restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call this neighbourhood home. Most of its freeway-sized streets may not capture the same character as other neighbourhoods in the city, but pockets of charm, like South Park, can still be found throughout its side streets.
