Fake Apple Stores in China Renamed to…’Smart Stores’!

Share:

Those epic knock-off Apple Stores in Kunming, China, shocked the world with their intricacy. More than 22 other stores have been discovered in the same area, but now it appears most of them are starting to change their operations to avoid attention, according to M.I.C. Gadget.

These stores have started to rename their storefronts as ‘Smart Store’. Yes, that’s right. Everything has stayed the same except for the name on the store front. The original Kunming store that was exposed still has a bright glowing Apple logo on its signage, with ‘Smart Store’ beside it. Gee, did these guys take a page out of Samsung for this bright idea?

Here are a couple pics below:

I can hardly wait to experience my first Smart Store grand opening. Maybe I’ll get a free knock-off tshirt?

    True, Shawnassy Zellers (and a piss poor Zellers it is), should become a Target by 2014.

    This I know. But one company is currently rolling out stores with the name “Target Apparel” maybe you haven’t seen one in your area yet 😛

    The real Target USA comes at the end of next year. Google the name “Target Apparel” and read the news articles on it.

    Hahaha that’s interesting!! From what I read “Target Apperal” is owned by Fairweather and has been for ten years … They are trying to block “Target USA” from using the name but “Target USA” is saying they haven’t used it in a while – thus the role out of the stores … Companies and their schoolyard bickering!

    These articles come as no surprise re: China. They don’t respect patents or copyrights  or trademarks et all. They’ll do anything for a dollar illegal or not. The culture is all about wealth, fortune & the illusion of prosperity (they’re the highest percentage of leased vehicles with respect to any other ethnic group so they can project the illusion that they can “afford” a new car every few years thus maintaining the “fortune/wealth/prosperity” illusion) Just look at the traditional medicine trade. They have no qualms killing endangered species all in an effort to satisfy an unquenchable thirst for an archaeic mentality/practise with little to no regard as to the consequences because in the end it generates a buck.
