H&N, Zala and Appla are just some of the phony stores in Wuxi, China

We’ve all heard about the counterfeit Apple store in China, but that’s just the tip of the iceberg! Take a stroll on a shopping street in Wuxi city, China, and you’re bound to think you’re seeing things. Instead of the Apple store, there’s Appla. Instead of Starbucks Coffee, there’s Sffcccks.

But don’t be too alarmed. These almost-identical logos don’t seem to be for actual shops, but rather facades for a building complex, Shimao Skycrapers. Is nothing sacred anymore? But, having said that, I do kinda like the idea of dropping into a place called Sfffcccks for a latte.
