— In a lawsuit filed last week, attorneys for accessory maker Coach allege the Sun Super Market in Fayetteville is infringing on the company's copyright by selling knock-off handbags imported from China.

The suit alleges that store owner Mi Kyong Rojas purchased the bags abroad and sold them at her store. She faces a criminal charge of selling counterfeit merchandise.

In addition to asking that Sun Super Market refrain from selling fake Coach products and turn in any existing inventory, Coach has asked for $2 million in damages. The company asked that the case be heard by a jury.

    Sorry but a $40. bag fro Walmart,Target,k-mart or even amazon will hold my car keys sunglasses and the cell phone do not need a knock off or a bag that cost any more

    I'm guessing that the real Coach bags are made in China too, so I'm not sure what the problem is. Especially since I doubt very seriously that she was passing them off as a real thing. 2 million dollars and a jury trial? Give me a break. Also, they sell them (and fake LV too) at every flea market here and on the side of the road all over town, so why pick on this one business owner? This is Fayetteville people. We've got real crime happening. Let's stop worrying about fake handbags and poker machines and get that murder/home invasion problem under control instead.

    Why? You want to buy fake low-quality knock-offs that fall apart after a year?

    All their bags are made in China now. Mostly plastic.

    The real victims are the people who pay $500 for a gaudy bag.
