The Court also ordered that damages paid by the former replica store operators, which amounted to a total of more than $1,000,000.00.
Among the many Chanel replica handbags offered for sale at the Chanel store called SightFocus once appearing here, was a replica designer handbag that was listed as in stock was advertised as a “Chanel Patent Leather Shoulder Bag Silver Grey 58689.” The price listed for this fake item was $149 or a wholesale price of $119 which required the purchase of at least five items. A number of photos accompanied the product listings showing everything from the famous CC monogram on the side the bank and on the zipper pull to the fake serial number which can be found inside the bag.

As if in an attempt to gloss over any potential customer concerns about buying cheap Chanel replicas, enticements abounded on many online Chanel knockoff stores, such as offers of a 15% discount to anyone purchasing 10 or more items, or offering free overnight shipping.
Low prices and discounts, whether on a pair or knockoff Chanel shoes or necklaces, are often simply tactics which are attempts make shoppers feel as though they are getting a great bargain. However, any amount of money spent on a Chanel replica can generally be expected to be a waste. Purchasing the real thing is the only option.
