  • Apple Store Draw More Foot Traffic Than Disney 1 comment
    Oct 22, 2010 7:25 PM | about stocks: AAPL, DIS, WMT, T, VZ

    I had once blogged about Apple needing to be careful about having too many stores. The exclusive issue is always at stake with an upscale brand. That notice is now quaint as one can but an iPad at Walmart or a wireless store of AT&T and soon Verizon.

    I read with great interest just a few minutes ago in the Atlantic that Apple Stores bring in more foot traffic than even Disney Parks.

    The bar chart says it all

    Disclosure: Long AAPL

    Stocks: AAPL, DIS, WMT, T, VZ

    I think their stores are an amazing idea. It really is the best type of marketing. I know when the iPad came out I was really skeptical. Then I walked into an Apple store and played with one and I was hooked.
