An expat who blogs under the name BirdAbroad found an Apple Store in Kunming, China.
But Apple doesn't have have an Apple Store in Kunming, China.
You have already guessed the punchline, of course: this was a total Apple store ripoff. A beautiful ripoff – a brilliant one – the best ripoff store we had ever seen (and we see them every day). But some things were just not right: the stairs were poorly made. The walls hadn't been painted properly.
Apple never writes "Apple Store" on it's signs – it just puts up the glowing, iconic fruit.
