Apple is #1 Retailer in Productivity

December 12, 2012


Today’s chart shows the most productive retailers in the United States in 2012, based on sales per square foot.

Apple is not only the most profitable company in the United States; it also has a highly effective retail strategy.

According to data released by Retail Sails, a research firm focused on the retail and consumer goods industries, Apple’s retail stores generated the highest sales per square foot of any retailer in the United States by a wide margin.

In the twelve months period covered in the report, Apple raked in $6,050 per square foot. Tiffany & Co., a luxury jewelry retailer, was ranked second with sales of $3,017 per square foot.

In terms of overall sales per store, Apple was ranked ninth, with average sales of $51.1 million. The undisputed leader in this category was Costco with average sales of $137.2 million per store.

These results show that good products alone might no longer be enough. Apple’s strategy of combining great products with a first class retail experience appears to be a winning combination.
