Gurman reports that Apple uses one of four descriptors for its retail locations: standard Apple Stores, an Apple Store+, Flagship and Flagship+. The standard versions are typically within indoor malls, while Apple Store+ locations are either large sites in outdoor developments or on city streets. The Flagships are major outlets in big cities, while Flagship+ stores are Apple’s most extensive locations in key or historical areas.

Gurman adds that he’s told that the average Apple Store within a mall makes about $40 million in revenue per year, while outdoor stores generate more than $45 million annually. Flagship stores, on average, could top $75 million in yearly revenue, while the Flagship+ locations can bring in more than $100 million.
