Chinese authorities said that they had asked these fake stores not to use Apple's logo after Apple China accused them of unfair competition and violating its registered trademark.
According to China's official news agency Xinhua, country's Administration for Industry and Commerce in the Yunnan provincial capital had taken appropriate measures to weed out these fake stores.
Earlier in July, an American blogger had found a fake Apple store in Kunming province that offered duplicate Apple products like iPhone, iPad, Mac computers etc. The blogger posted the photos of this store, which duped the store from colour of the paint to the tag of the employees.
Apple officially commented that the store was unauthorized and forced Chinese officials to act against these stores. Later officials asked two fake stores to end its operation.
