Why fake the products, when you can copy the entire store?
The BirdAbroad blogposted photos and a detailed description of a fake Apple store in the southwestern Chinese city of Kunming.
At first glance the store looked legitimate. There was a winding staircase, employees wearing blue T-shirts with chunky Apple name tags around their necks. But there were telltale signs that the store was a fake.
First, Apple doesn't write "Apple Store" on its signs, it just posts its iconic logo, or in the case of authorized resellers,the words "Apple Shop". Also, those stairs were poorly made, according to the expat blogger.
