The five-level Westfield Horton Plaza is one of San Diego's favorite shopping malls, located just next to the Gaslamp Quarter. The complex includes more than 130 retail shops, anchored by two huge department stores, Nordstrom and Macy's. There is also a large Gap outlet on the premises.
Some two dozen categories of goods are sold at the smaller shops positioned between the department stores. They include women's apparel, shoes, fashion accessories, jewelry, children and teen's clothing, watches, health and beauty items, leathers, men's fashions, and sportswear. Also sold are books, cards and gifts, entertainment items, home furnishings, luggage and handbags, specialty food, sports equipment, sunglasses and optical products, and wireless communication devices.
Among major retailers at the Westfield Horton Plaza are Abercrombie & Fitch, Banana Republic, Guess?, Victoria's Secret, American Eagle, Bebe, Frederick's of Hollywood, Dockers, Zales and Ben Bridge jewelers, Bath & Body Works, and more. For children, GameStop has an outlet here, as does Go! Toys and Games. And for electronics and music, Ritz Camera, Brookstone, and Sam Goody fill the bill.

General Nutrition Center can be found on Level 5. Massages are available at So Relax on Level 3. And Regis Salon, Platinum Tan, and Rocco's Hair Design have branches here, too.
