Shutdowns

China Closes Fake Apple Stores

A blog post last week about fake Apple stores in China—where even the staff thought they worked for Apple—went viral, but the attention isn’t good for business: The Chinese government has shut down two fake Apple stores in Kunming city. The store featured in the blog post, however, remains open, as China says it is licensed to sell real Apple products. Two other shops purporting to be Apple shops remain open in Kunming city, as well. The only official Apple stores in China are in Beijing and Shanghai.
