Apple knockoffs, next stop, retail stores

Looks like China wasn’t satisfied with making knockoff Apple products, they’ve now created fake Apple retail stores.


You have already guessed the punchline, of course: this was a total Apple store ripoff. A beautiful ripoff – a brilliant one – the best ripoff store we had ever seen (and we see them every day). 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.

And the funniest part:

Being the curious types that we are, we struck up some conversation with these salespeople who, hand to God, all genuinely think they work for Apple.

    I’ve heard about this before, but I didn’t know their employees really thought they were working for Apple.
