Fake brands mall opens in China

China has confirmed itself as the “king of counterfeiters” with the building of a new shopping center dedicated to fake brands.

City bosses are under pressure to ban the soon-to-be opened mall after pictures of the fake stores were leaked, causing uproar amongst angry consumers who feared they’d be ripped off.

“Not every shopper is brand conscious so a lot of people will walk into these stores thinking they are getting the real thing,” said an angry shopper in a local newspaper. “Some fakes are done light-heartedly to be funny, but these stores look so much like the real thing people are going to feel cheated,” the shopper added.
