Management at Pacific Mall in Markham says it’s moving to stop imitation goods from being sold there – following a U.S. government report claiming it was among the world’s most notorious sources of such products.

In January, the U.S. Office of the Trade Representative named the predominantly Chinese-Canadian shopping centre in its annual review of so-called “notorious markets” – that included 18 brick-and-mortar locations and 25 online retailers.

Preliminary steps to tackle the illegal activity include issuing written advisories and warnings – to store owners and tenants engaging in such activities.

Pacific Mall says it’s also partnering with manufacturers to assist in identifying imitation products – and commissioning a private investigator to conduct internal audits and monitor for imitation goods.

It has also launched a website where shoppers can report suspected imitation goods.
