We are pretty use to seeing stories about fake Apple products that stream out of China but it seems that some bootleggers have decided to raise the bar and have opened up “Apple Stores” in some Chinese cities.
According to one American couple who came across the one in the pictures in the city of Kumming, one of three in the city apparently, was several hundred miles from the nearest official Apple store. On the surface they might have seemed similar once you took a close look it was fairly obvious that while the overall theme was along the lines of Apple’s official stores the little things were what gave it away. Little things like “Apple Stoer” along with the outside Apple logo. The real stores just have the logo.
The really amazing thing though, is that the employees in these stores believe that they are actually working for Apple, blue t-shirts and all.
