In the continuing saga of those hilarious fake Apple stores in Kunming, China, it looks like they've made an about face and changed their name to the Smart Store. Well not an about face, really. Just a logo change.
Three of the five fake Apple stores in Kunming, China, were allowed to stay open because they had the right business permits, but what's the fate of these 22 extra stores just discovered in the same city?
So that hoax of an Apple Store in Kunming, China is under no illusions as to its legitimacy—it's unauthorized and lovin' it. Have a problem with the counterfeit operation? They couldn't care less, the WSJ reports.
Don't be deceived by the slick marketing materials and blue shirts with Apple logos. This is not an Apple Store. It's a cheap knock-off located in Kunming, China.
