City Sues to Shut Down Bootleg Bieber Cologne Shop

07.29.13 Andy Cush

More important work from New York’s finest. After a February raid on a Midtown store selling counterfeit Justin Bieber cologne failed to stop the shop from hawking the goods, the city is suing the establishment–Jacks Perfume, at 1220 Broadway–with the intent of shutting it down.

“Our job is to come here and to sell,” a worker told a DNAinfo reporter who verified that the bootleg perfume was still being sold, saying the owners never told their workers the bottles were fake.

Aspiring Beliebers will have to settle for paying $37.50 at Sephora.
