“In the US, on a sales per square foot basis, Apple retail continues to perform twice as well as Tiffany & Co., the second best retailer, and three times as well as lululemon athletica, the third best retailer,” Horace Dediu reports for Asymco.

“The latest quarter showed a 7% growth in visitors and a new record revenue of $57.6 per visitor,” Dediu reports. “As a result, the average revenue per Apple store per quarter reached $13 million, the highest level for a non-holiday quarter.”

“Profit per visitor [is] holding steady at about $12/quarter,” Dediu reports. “Retail performance remains constrained by store size (hence maximum number of visitors) and the number of stores. The strategy seems to be expanding US stores while opening new stores outside the US.”
