My favorite Apple Store is the glass shrine on 5th Avenue, just a few blocks from where I work. I bought a new iMac there a couple of weeks ago. The place was packed with locals and tourists paying homage and buying at Apple’s flagship store. Erica Ogg:
The New York Post reports that as of sometime last year, Apple was pulling down $440 million a year in sales at its Fifth Avenue Apple Store in New York City. The numbers surfaced in the paper’s investigation of empty retail space along Fifth Avenue.
Not bad for a 24/7 retail store in the middle of an economic recession.
