There are not too many well known outlet shops in San Francisco. Nordstrom Rack is located on Ninth Street, but the store is often messy, understaffed, and picked over. If you're searching for designer deals, head out of the city to Petaluma, Livermore, or Gilroy. Forty minutes north of the city, up highway 101, you'll find the Petaluma Village Premium Outlets. There are lots of shops to peruse: Saks Fifth Avenue Off 5th, Levi's, BCBG Max Azria, Banana Republic, and Brooks Brother to name a few. About forty minutes east of the city, you'll come to the recently opened Livermore Premium Outlets. The highlight here is the Bloomingdale's Outlet Store. There is also 7 for All Mankind, Burberry, J. Crew, Prada, and Lucky Brand. About two hours south of San Francisco are the Gilroy Premium Outlets. This massive outlet has Juicy Couture, Lacoste, Nike, Coach, and French ceramics maker Le Creuset.
