    Angry Stores selling fake handbags..

    Over the weekend i was in vacation at a popular lakeside holiday spot. This place gets thousands of tourists every year. I happened to visit a gorgeous outdoor mall there. the mall has small cute storefronts with local touristy stuff and also handmade artifacts and jewelry by local artists. In the middle of of the Mall was a store called "Be You". I walked into it and was amazed to see the store filled with counterfeit Coach, Chanel, Prada and every other brand handbag The bags were on window display. While I am not a pro at spotting fakes, the price was enough to signal that the bags were fakes. I saw a Chanel cambon, Coach sabrina and many more...

    While I do know fakes are sold in many places, what amazed me was that 2 storefronts down was the local chamber of commerce and the Mall is located next to the local Police Precinct

    Is there nothing that can be done about stores selling fakes? While some people would intentionally buy fakes, there are others who might get conned into thinking they are getting the real deal because it is being sold in a legit store and not on a sidewalk...

    You should notify the police about the store. I think that is just ridiculous. I am writing my bachelors thesis paper on counterfeit handbags and have done so much more research these past few weeks that I just get even more fumed now when I hear about them! Hopefully something can be done to stop them!

    It happens everywhere. Sometimes, people do know that's fake, but still buy it. If customer resist it, how can those store survive?

    It is not called snitching when you are pointing out something wrong that is being done.

    Selling other peoples ideas and designs which you had no part in developing is not called survival, it is called stealing. When you steal and are a thief, you better be prepared to face the consequences.

    FedUp, I think carole meant that if customers resist the urge to buy replicas then those stores can't survive. Meaning they will have to close.
    At least that is how I took it.

    Well if that is what carole meant, my apologies. It sounded to me like Carole was defending fake/replica bag sellers

    In China Town in NYC it's the exact same way... but worse. The cops, and there are quite a few, are walking around in front of the stores where people are selling counterfeit items. The only reason they're there is to make sure people aren't stealing. The cops know that people are selling knockoffs, but they do nothing about it. So weird.
