A single Apple Retail Store is worth as much as the White House

“Which is more valuable: The White House or one single Apple store?” David Goldman asks for CNNMoney.
“It’s almost a tie. Apple sells an annual average of $4,709 worth of merchandise per square foot in its hundreds of stores across the world,” Goldman reports. “Meanwhile, the presidential mansion in Washington is valued at $4,752 per square foot, according to real estate website Zillow.”

“The tech giant’s sales-per-square-foot numbers put it in uncharted retail territory… It is by far the most valuable chain in the U.S. The runner-up, Tiffany’s, lags way behind. Tiffany’s averages $2,974 per square foot, according to industry publication RetailSails. That’s almost 40% less than Apple hauls in.”
