Apple Store Stats 2012

Apple’s (AAPL) stores are some of the most popular retail locations in the world, having hosted nearly 300 million visitors throughout its 375 locations so far in fiscal 2012 alone. When people visit the stores they aren’t just browsing, according to The Loop — the Cupertino-based company’s Genius Bar services a whopping 50,000 people worldwide each and every day. With new products on the horizon, the stores are bound to get even more crowded in the coming months. Apple is reportedly readying both a new iPhone and iPad mini for the fall, and it just became the most valuable company in U.S. history. The company opened its latest stores this past weekend in Halifax, Nova Scotia and Coquitlam, British Columbia.
