  • They have basically hand-crafted their target market and they aim straight for it (and they've thoroughly convinced me that I'm not in it.)

    As for the building itself, you might not have noticed the details [], but I imagine that the architects and everyone involved in the construction did. The stainless steel panels were done by A. Zahner Co. [], and you're not going to see work like theirs in any typical retail store. I developed the software for Zahner's fabrication of the deYoung museum and a few other projects, so I've seen their attention to detail -- if every detail is done with that level of quality and material, it might cost 2-3x as much per square foot compared to "typical" retail.

    Even the "plain" tables are probably anything-but-typical in terms of fabrication and cost. But, here you see the importance of focus again: It's not a huge warehouse full of random products.

    • I agree with the cost thing. They may be plain tables, but they are very intentionally so. And they are EXTREMELY solid tables.

      The reason, of course, is that the Apple stores make an obscene amount of money on a per-square-foot basis compared to any other retail operation.
