Chinatown and North Beach are unique immigrant neighborhoods, and consequently there are almost no large chain stores to be found.  In Chinatown, Grant Avenue is the main shopping thoroughfare for tourists. Here you will find Oriental handicrafts of all descriptions, from jade statues to Asian rugs, qipaos, hanfus, and kimonos. It also has many souvenir stores and small market stalls that sell typical tourist knickknacks. Stockton Street runs parallel to Grant on its west, and has many fresh produce and household ware stores that are popular with locals and overflow onto the sidewalks which overflow onto the streets during peak shopping hours.

At a number of establishments between Stockton and Grant (on Clay, Washington, Waverly, and Broadway), you can get amazingly cheap $6 haircut.  It's practically free if you consider the money you've saved on lunch if you've gone to Dim Sum.  If you choose wisely, you can even watch Chinese-language soap operas while you wait.
