The Apple Store is arguably the most successful story in retail history outside of Walmart.
Despite having just over 400 stores, Apple brought in nearly $7 billion in revenue from its physical stores in its most recent quarter. Last year, nearly 100 million people shopped at their stores in a single quarter — that's more than 18,000 visitors per store per week.
That's incredibly impressive when you take into consideration the fact that Apple has only been opening its iconic retail locations since 2001. Below, we've taken the locations and dates when Apple opened every one of its stores to create an animated map of openings over time.
