I used to go to Lombardi Sports more often, but then I discovered Sports Basement. Prices at Lombardi seem to be more expensive than other stores which is my main reason for not shopping there anymore.. But still, they have a huge store and good selection for camping equipment and running gear.
I've only been to the location on Clement, and didn't really see what all the fuss was about. They have a lot of different food products, but you have to check and make sure that what you're buying isn't old and expired. Sometimes you can find some decent items, like mustard or gourmet jelly for pretty cheap though.
I really like the design of the furniture they sell at EQ3 because it's so modern and clean looking, and it does seem to be better quality than Ikea stuff. But I also noticed that prices are a lot more expensive than Ikea too, and even though this place is said to be low cost, it's still a little pricey.
I have only been to the North Face Outlet in San Francisco, and was disappointed that things weren't cheaper. They have a good selection of products, like jackets and backpacks, but you really have to go during an outlet sale to get a good deal. Otherwise things are only a little cheaper than retail, and you might find a better deal at REI or Sports Basement.
This winery is huge and is usually really crowded, but for good reason, since it's really nice. The building is beautiful and the grounds are nice to walk around or have a picnic in, and they have a small museum area with things from Francis Ford Coppola's movies. The tastings cost about $5 but you get a free glass, and they also have a small cafe with outdoor seating.
This is the real farmers market in San Francisco, especially when compared to the Ferry Building, which is more upscale and touristy. I don't go here that often since it's not close to where I live, but they always have really fresh fruits and vegetables that are brought in from the farms around the bay area. Prices are pretty cheap too. There are a few stalls that have bakery items, and there is a guy selling tamales and a stall for cooked indian foods like samosas, too.
This is a huge Korean supermarket in Daly City where you can get pre-marinated beef bulgogi, and also pork and chicken, and ribs. They also have a lot of grocery items like fresh produce, snack foods, and a bakery section. They also have Korean style sushi, kimchee, and other premade appetizers.
Even though it's kind of out of the way, I always go here to buy fresh fruits and vegetables. It's almost like a farmers market. They have a lot of fresh fruits and prices are pretty cheap, especially if you compare it to a regular grocery store.
A few years ago I bought a new Honda Civic from SF Honda. I thought the salesmen there were honest and knew what they were talking about, and I was still able to negotiate the price down a little. They have a good selection and seem trustworthy.
I recently went with A Plus Windows for replacing all of the front windows in my house. Gary at A Plus is a great guy and he and is very efficient and fast at his work. Prices are really reasonable too.
