The costliest retail location in the world is 5th Avenue in NYC between 49th and 60th Streets; the rent is $3,500/square foot/year.
Next comes Causeway Bay in Hong Kong at $2,399,
the Champs Elysees in Paris at $1,372, and
New Bond Street in London at $1,321.
Among the 15 costliest locations only one is in North America!
Black Friday aside, we need to raise our shopping game.
But, if this Black Friday has showed us anything it's that more and more people are shopping On-Line and not visiting the brick and mortor shops.
I started my Christmas shopping online with the Pre-Black Friday sales days before Thanksgiving with 4 keystrokes I had bought for 4 people already, no lines, no waiting, got what I wanted and all shipped for Free.
What more could you ask for?
