Apple Stores Are By Far The Most Profitable Retail Spaces

A good measure of how profitable retail stores are is that of sales per square foot. Rather than just using sales alone, this measure evens the playing field between giants like Costco and small stores like Gap. And by that measure, Apple makes almost twice as much as the next store on the list, the jewelry store from Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Tiffany & Co. The top performers on the list are all boutique chains, and the first big box store, Costco, comes in sixth, with a meager 18% of Apple’s sales per square foot. Overall however, things are completely reversed: Apple had 17% of Costco’s total sales.
