Snooty Customers – This is the mall where you'll find the elite shoppers who do it for a hobby. I don't think it represents Palo Alto well. Most of these people must be from neighboring towns such as Atherton or the like. I always feel the need to dress up to shop here.
The shopping center should ban dogs from this outdoor mall. I have seen them peeing waterfalls on poles and poop smeared on the cement. Imagine that on your Pradas! But the mall admin is too wimpy to ban dogs and upset their snooty customers.
Upscale retailers like Nieman-Marcus and Tiffany's compete for the dollars of Silicon Valley millionaires. – The Scene
Don't bother coming to Stanford if you're looking for a washing machine, hardware or, well, anything useful. This high-end mall, just north of the Standford campus, is divided into two parts with the main section anchored by Macy's, Nieman-Marcus and California's first Bloomingdale's. Across Arboretum Road is Nordstrom, a two-story Crate & Barrel and the posh supermarket, Andronico's.
Gleim Jewelers, the world's first Victoria's Secret, Tiffany's jewelry store, and an open-air Polo/Ralph Lauren shop draw plenty of Silicon Valley shoppers. Drop in at Cornelia Park--an exceptional houseware store that is reminiscent of the Mad Hatter's tea party. Ralph Lauren, TSE, MaxMara and Cielo all carry high-end designer clothing. There's also Gap, Banana Republic, The Limited and other mid-level retailers for those who don't have a fat wallet.
