This is a great store to shop for yourself or somebody else who is into cooking - or simply eating. The merchandise is well selected and well presented. They often offer cooking demonstrations and tastings. The staff is well trained and informative. They carry a great selection of specialty foods, cookware, china, glass and even some small appliances. I absolutely adore the cleaning stuff sold by WIlliams-Sonoma! It smells so good that it is actually fun to clean with it. A store where I could easily spend a fortune if I had it.
