Why there isn’t an Apple Store in Dothan Alabama?

All profits/proceeds go directly to the top of the corporate food chain, period

All Apple Stores are company-owned. Your only option is to open an AppleAuthorized Reseller (AAR). This is an incredibly onerous process that requires approval from Apple, a promise to purchase a minimum of $100,000 in equipment each year from Apple, and profit margins on the order of 3-5%.
