This Is Simply the Greatest Retailer in the World

This video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which chief technology officer Jeremy Phillips discusses topics across the investing world.

A recent ranking of America's top retail brands had a significant omission. Apple is of course known for its products, but it has put just as much care into designing its retail locations.

Apple is likely the most covered company in the world. Big tech names might gather a lot of investor attention, but the truth is that they're playing second fiddle to an even larger revolution in technology. To better prepare investors for this new revolution, The Motley Fool has released a free report on mobile called "The Next Trillion-Dollar Revolution" that details a hidden component play inside mobile phones that also is a leader in the exploding Chinese market. Inside the report, we not only describe why the mobile revolution will dwarf any other technology revolution seen before it, but we also name the company at the forefront of the trend. Hundreds of thousands have requested access to previous reports, and you can access this new report today by clicking here -- it's free.

    $5,600/sq. ft. -- Is that per day? Per week? Month? Year?

    Are all readers just supposed to automatically know what that means?

    Flapjackkittykat when speaking of retail space it is always per year. So for an Apple store that is 10,000 sq feet that would = 56 million is sales in a year. That is over a 150,000 per day or a million a week. Apple has a few locations over 23,000 sq ft in size so you can see just how impressive these numbers are

    Also the video compares Apple stores to Tiffany's and Coach where Apple almost doubles Tiffanys but fails to mention that those retail stores are usually less than a third of the size , so much less sq ft to sell.
