Walk to dozens of stores in the downtown retail district, including the flagship Nordstrom store or venture further afield to shop other Seattle-grown national brands Filson, Brooks Running, and REI. Explore charming boutique-lined commercial streets in the city’s diverse neighborhoods and discover unique finds at area markets, vintage malls, and thrift stores.
