12 Great Places to Shop in Glendale, CA

Glendale is an economic and commercial powerhouse, and estimates place Glendale as the third largest financial center in the state of California. This place is blessed with an abundance of both exclusive and affordable retail shops. Glendale recognizes the importance of shopping!

Nordstrom at the Americana at Brand

Located in the Americana at Brand, this Nordstrom outlet is new. Their Grand Opening took place just recently and was quite fun to attend. Also worth checking out are the additional shopping, movie, and dining opportunities here.


Located near the heart of downtown Glendale, inside the Glendale Galleria, Macy's features a variety of fine shops, as well as dining experiences, to enjoy. This mid-range chain of department stores is ideally suited for family needs.

Big 5 Sporting Goods

Big 5 is located right at the corner of Central and Wilson, in the heart of downtown. Great resource for me! A friend calls for a tennis match and it's a quick stop for a couple of cans of tennis balls. Great inventory for all your sports needs.


Three floors of great stuff. My office is just across the street and when it's 3:00 PM - and I need a snack - I hit Target's grocery section. Target is the second largest discount retailer in the U.S with lots of snacks on offer and most notably, just as much parking space at the Glendale Galleria.

Nordstrom Rack Glendale Fashion Center

Lots of parking is important for your shopping experience and easy parking in the LA area is particularly vital. I love the Rack for this and many other reasons. I'm odd sized, long and lean with big feet, yet I can always find something suitable for my odd-looking self here. Another thing adding attraction to this store is that designer brands are up to 70% off.


Located in the Glendale Fashion Center, Staples is a quick trip in and out for office supplies. Whatever you might need - from printer ink to furniture to cleaning supplies to copy & print services - Staples have it. Lots of parking adds to the appeal!!!


In Glendale, we go up. Sears is still a fun old fashion place to shop. Plenty of parking. Always a great place to find top name appliances and tools. There is clothing for the whole family, too. My favorite store when I was a kid.

XXI Forever

Ok hipsters, this is the place. Top fashions for you located at the Americana at Brand. Easy access and courteous staff waiting to serve you. Forever 21 is now the 5th largest specialty retailer in the U.S. Did you know Forever 21 is a family owned business?

Ross Dress for Less

Ross Dress for Less store is located inside the Glendale Fashion Center. This retail chain specializes in selling fashion for the family at reduced prices. The range includes brand name clothing, shoes, accessories & housewares, and the prices are usually some 20-60% lower than at regular department stores. Well worth a drive! - No shortage of parking at the Glendale Center.

Barneys New York, Glendale

Luxury specialty retailer bringing fashion from the world's top designers for women and men along with accessories, shoes, jewelry, cosmetics, and fragrances. Located in the Americana at Brand. Lots of parking!


Located in the Glendale Galleria with plenty of parking available, JC Penny offers great selections for the family. They have a section for men big and tall, so even I can look half way descent. Staff at this location is excellent.

Champs Sports

Located in the Glendale Galleria. Go Dodgers! Find what you need to support your team. Champs Sports says, "Gear up from head to toe with the latest shoes and apparel." They feature shoes, boots, casual, running, sandals, and slides.
