China selling fake iPhones through phony Apple Store

July 20, 2011

9to5 cited Bird Abroad’s report that states that China is not only selling fake iPhones but also encouraging establishment of phony Apple stores. BirdAbroad has published pictures featuring staff that wears blue shirts with Apple logos and name labels for the employees, glossy exterior white Apple front and center.

There are three stores of this types located in Kunming and the sales staff of these stores still believe that they are working for real Apple stores. Everything including winding stair cases, grey stone floors are identical to original Apple store and iPads, Macs and more products will greet you when you take the walk down the line.

9to5 Mac writes that the store has “an area for children with cushy and fun chairs, and of course what appears to be a mini Genius Bar or a section of the store to take product lessons from employees.”
