Since you brought up defunt Northern California retail chains, I'll have a go at it:

The Emporium (San Francisco and a dozen or so branches)
Capwell's (Oakland and 5 branches)
City of Paris (San Francisco and 3 branches)
Kahn's (Oakland and Concord) became Rhodes in 1960
Rhodes (Oakland, Concord, Sacramento, Mtn View) became Liberty House in late 1970's
Liberty House (San Francisco, Oakland and 6 branches)
O'Connor & Moffatt (became Macy's in 1947)
Albert's (San Rafael and Richmond). Bought by Macy's in 1952
Hale's (San Francisco, Oakland and branches)
The White House (San Francisco & Oakland)
Hink's (Berkeley)
Levy Bros (San Mateo, Burlingame, Redwood City, Half Moon Bay, Foster City)

And the following fashion stores, based in San Francisco, all with multiple branches:
