    Wow! I figured it did well but I didn't know it did THAT well. It's pretty, I think it beckons people in from the chaos of walking on those streets.

    Great news. I have to say, I've always liked Regent Street as a street instead of Oxford Street. Much nicer, grander buildings, slightly less packed than Oxford Street.

    And I hate shopping, so things like the Apple Store, Ferrari and Hamleys are more up my street.

    I wonder if Microsoft will be allowed in? :p

    Regent Street wasn't all that bad. I always liked going to Hamleys. Though their computer games division always looked sad next to their floors and floors piled high of vastly more enjoyable toys :)

    That figure of £2000 per square foot - is that per month or per year? I always hate it when these figures are given without indicating a timespan.

    The MacNN article quotes the Sub Standard newspaper.

    With that in mind, I don't think it really matters, because the figures are probably wrong anyway.

    usually per year, which for the 28,000 sq ft store gives close to GBP 60 million (roughly US$100 million) in annual sales...

    This was also reported in Macworld a couple of months back.

    Cool, well I'm lucky or unlucky (depending on how you look at it), to be one of the people who has contributed to that massive figure.

    It is my local store, only 10 minutes away. :):)

    I find that store to be ridiculously busy most of the time...

    The one in Westfield Shopping centre is easier to move in!
