“Apple’s stores are leading the retail industry in revenue per square foot, and none of its competitors seem to be able to crack the code,” Geoff Duncan writes for DigitalTrends.
“According to RetailSails, Apple Stores generate more revenue per square foot than stores operated by high-end jewelry retailer Tiffany & Company. That would be impressive in its own right – Tiffany & Co. is the leading retail diamond merchant and came in number two in RetailSails’ metrics,” Duncan writes. “But Apple didn’t just beat Tiffany, it trounced the poor jeweler: RetailSails estimates Apple stores pulled in $6,050 per square foot, compared to $3,017 per square foot for Tiffany & Co. Other retailers didn’t even come close.”
Duncan writes, “Given that Apple stores have been around since 2001, why haven’t other retailers been able to copy the experience and try to beat Apple at its own game?”
