I came across this article in Fortune which describes why Apple is the best retailer in America. Some interesting data points.
Saks generates sales of $362 per square foot a year. Best Buy stores turn $930. Tiffany takes in $2,666. Apple? Apple turns $4,032 per square foot.
Apple currently has 174 stores. They attract an average of 13,800 visitors a week. In 2004, Apple reached $1 billion in annual sales faster than any retailer in history; last year, sales reached $1 billion a quarter.
Sadly, there was no Apple store in Bermuda.
