Visit to a fake Apple store in China


Jessica found three fake Apple stores in China and took photos. It's not clear whether the products were genuine or knockoffs.

They looked like Apple products. It looked like an Apple store. It had the classic Apple store winding staircase and weird upstairs sitting area. The employees were even wearing those blue t-shirts with the chunky Apple name tags around their necks… But some things were just not right: the stairs were poorly made. The walls hadn't been painted properly.

Apple never writes "Apple Store" on it's signs – it just puts up the glowing, iconic fruit.
