An official investigation has uncovered five fake Apple stores in Kunming. China has moved to shut down several fake Apple stores found in Kunming city. Three of the elaborate fake stores, which mimicked the look of the real thing, came to the world’s attention after being exposed on a blog. Following the publicity, trade officials investigated and found five stores in Kunming posing as official Apple retail outlets. Two of the five have now been closed as their owners lacked a business licence. The BirdAbroad blog, written by an American woman living in Kunming, wrote about a visit to one fake Apple store which superficially resembled the official outlets.
