Does any other company come close to pouring as much money into their retail stores? The outlay for these buildings and locations is astounding.

Sees new Apple Store... turns to go in...sees rows of staff waiting to clap me down the stairs...makes prompt 180° ('https://www.degreesymbol.net/') turn.


Apple returning its profits by enhancing the customer experience. Few companies do this. Apple should be respected for 'giving back'
I'm not sure I'd class a company building a new store (or modernising an old one) to lure more customers in and increase profits as 'giving back' in any way.
