Move Over Tiffany’s! Per Square Foot, Apple Is The Most Powerful Retailer In America

New data published by RetailSails this week — an independent analyzer of the U.S. retail industry —  has revealed that Apple is the highest ranking U.S. retailer when it comes to sales per square foot, way ahead of companies like Tiffany & Co, Costco, and Best Buy.

According to RetailSails, Apple enjoys a staggering $5,626 worth of sales per square foot across its 327 retail stores in the U.S. To put that figure into perspective, the retailer in second place — out of 160 retailers in total — is Tiffany & Co, with sales of just $2,974 per square foot.

When you take a look at GameStop, arguably Apple’s closes competitor, the Cupertino company achieves almost 5% as much in sales per square foot. GameStop has 6,500 stores nationwide, with sales of just $1,009 per square foot.

It’s no wonder, then, that Apple continues to open up retail stores all over the world.

    ..I Got an íPäd 2.64GB for $21.41 and my boyfriend loves his Panasoníc Lumíx GF 1 Cámera that we got for $38.79 there arriving tomorrow by UP S.I will never pay such expensive retail príces in stores again. Especially when I also sold a 40 inch LCD T V to my boss for $657 which only cost me $62.81 to buy.

    Your Gamestop statistic is off. Apple has about 5 times more sales, or 500% more. Does anyone there ever proofread?
