In Shenyang, Liaoning province and want to do some luxury shopping? Well, as netizen @shenyangskyscrapers discovered, Wanda Square has you covered, with everything from CNANEL to PRΛDΛ. Need to do some banking? Hit up Standard Chertered. Caffeine levels low? Never fear, Starbocks has got you covered.
A representative from the Wanda group, which oversees the square, told Xinhua that the fake stores were for “marketing purposes”. So they’re not abusing registered trademarks to sell fake goods, just abusing registered trademarks to sell other goods. Which is… better? Maybe.
