This is totally awesome! From what I've read, this story has gone viral. I imagine that Apple inc. is shaking their heads in disbelief. It appears that the products they sell are genuine, it just that they are not authorized to sell them. They are manufactured after all, in China. Go figure...

But it says "Apple Store" on the sign

Haha, just saw this in the paper today. Apparently, the employees that worked there genuinely thought that they were working at a legit Apple Store. So the employees weren't aware that it was fake either. :haha:

Meh, as long as they are selling the genuine authentic product, with authentic warranty and etc, who cares if the store is "authorized" or a "copy".

So I can go open a unauthorized bestbuy, maybe use the futureshop color scheme and make the employs wear name tags that say "worker"?

Actually, that sounds like a good ideal.

Oh what about Russian Wallmart!...
