According to Lifescript, the garment district in San Francisco is in the South of Market area, located between 2nd and 11th streets. As of 2008, over 100 factories in the garment district produced an annual profit of $5 billion for the district's manufacturing industry.
Lifescript reports that San Francisco's garment district is poor in amenities but superior in bargains. For example, stores have communal dressing rooms and poor lighting. However, clothing found in garment district stores can be priced between 20 and 75 percent lower than retail. The recommended times to shop in the bargain district are Fridays and early Saturdays due to the arrival of new merchandise; furthermore, the month of March is considered a bargain due to leftover fashions from the winter and fall seasons.
