Apple's Revenue Per Store Visitor Hits Record High

Apple's retail stores have been ranked as the U.S. retail chain with the highest sales per square foot for a number of years and according to a new report from Asymco’s Horace Dediu, the company also outranks competitors when it comes to revenue per visitor, hitting a record high of $57.60 per visitor in the first quarter of 2013.

Apple experienced a seven percent growth in visitors during the quarter, leading to an average of $13 million in revenue per Apple Store, which is the highest it has been during a non-holiday quarter.

During its Q2 financial results call, Apple reported a total of $43.6 billion in revenue with $5.2 billion in retail, up 19% from the previous quarter.

Apple gets an average of 250,000 visitors per store per quarter, up from approximately 170,000 visitors per quarter in 2010. In recent years, the company has been focusing on building new Apple Stores across the globe and expanding existing stores to increase available square footage. Apple plans to open 30 new retail stores in fiscal 2013 and remodel 20.

Perhaps I don't get it, but I'd rather get my Apple products from the online store than to set foot in these hipster infested stores... #mysanthropy

That comment had hipster undertones. ;)

It's not very surprising Apple has a high $ sale per square foot...when 90% that Apple sells is $299 and higher...probably the average Apple purchase is $800 or more.
Having expensive items to sell doesn't do it. You also have to actually _sell_ the stuff.


That's because of the overpriced Apple accessories.
As usual, lilo tries to put a negative spin on things, and again, she fails.

If Apple products were overpriced, sales wouldn't be high, they would be low. Because people don't buy overpriced things. Common sense: If it is overpriced, I don't buy it.

You don't know anything about economics. This data suggests that Apple stuff is correctly priced or even underpriced.

Discounts and deals are signals that a seller recognizes his prices are too high. When was the last time you saw a sale at the Apple Store?

Yep, a simple economics concept the haters simply cannot - or refuse to - understand.
