“Apple Stoers” Spotted in China

“Apple Stoers” Spotted in China

Jul 22, 2011

If you’re in Kunming any time soon, don’t be fooled by the almost exact replicas of Apple stores. These stores are fake, and they sell fake “dummy” Apple hardware such as fake iPhones to fake iPads. These guys have gone the extra mile to make the stores look almost exactly lik their US counterparts. One of the stores offers a spiraling staircase, while others just stick to the traditional simplicity look.  There is one catch though: the stores are easily recognizable as fake because they say “Apple Store” at the top, and even in one instance “Apple Stoer”. Apparently, the employees also wear the traditional blue Apple t-shirts and name tags. The surprising thing is that there are a few of them just in Kunming, and we are still waiting from Apple to see if they will do anything about this.
