    Trurthfully, i'd hope i could tell the difference because i'd snap if I bought it off some nobody store thats going to get shut down thats not even an authorized apple reseller..? with no backing or guarantee. Bought off 3-rd party then brought to there store..? soo it goes from foxcomm or w/e through apple + mark up.. then lets say through best buy +mark up.. now to these fake apple stores +markup?

    One thing I did find funny was the picture of the dude. Thinking he's an actual Apple Store Employee absolutely killed me ahahahahhaha.

    No. Stores are still open just visited one 24 hours ago. So not closed. There are 5 stores and only two were shut down because of permits not because the were fake.

    Apple big wigs called whatever Chinese telecom big wigs that struck a deal with them, and said hey, handle this, NOW! Lol

    Remember the old news stories about Apple Stores in China promoting jailbreaking? It was probably one of these.
