Everyone knows that the Chinese are world leaders when it comes to fake products, but the Communist country has cemented itself as the 'King of the Counterfeiters' with a new mall dedicated to the brand impostors.
The copycat brands have logos that are "almost the same" as the original products they're faking, but now city bosses in Nanjing (east of Shanghai) are under pressure to stop the mall from opening.
The mall is still being finished, but shoppers who saw pictures of the fake stores have slammed the whole idea as "plain dishonest"...
"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"Big brand sportswear companies are also the regular targets of counterfeiters. The new Fake Brand Mall is likely to stock the brand of Naik, which seems to share a similar "swoosh" and slogan ("Just Do It") with the more commonly known label, Nike.
