Sacramento shoppers know a class act when they see one. And Nordstrom’s women’s department is definitely a class act. Known for its customer service and no-questions-asked return policy, Nordstrom offers the region’s best selection of designer apparel, as well as fab shoe and handbag departments. Nordstrom is the place to shop for designer jeans: 7 for All Mankind, Chip & Pepper, David Kahn, Rock & Republic and True Religion are just a few of the brand names available. The stores are clean, brightly lit and well-organized, and the merchandise is always beautifully displayed. Nordstrom’s half-yearly sales in May and November, and its anniversary sale in July, are legendary.
