Visited Saks in San Fran to buy my wife some perfume, we waited ages to get assistance from a sales assistant. I’ve shopped in the Saks in NYC loads off times and never experienced this before.

Union Square
Originally home to rallies supporting the Union Army
in the Civil War, this grand square has become the
city's premier shopping and entertainment district
containing the largest number of upscale department
stores, chic boutiques, art galleries and theaters in
the city. It's a large open area where tourists and
locals gather, watch cable cars and crowds go by,
enjoy a snack, or plan their day of shopping and
