Delicious, crisp apples.

Looks like residents of Green Bay, Wisconsin, are getting their apples mixed up.

The Apple Store in the Midwest city is located on Mason Street, but upon arriving you won’t see the typical kind of storefront with large windows and spreads of different devices on white tables. Instead, you’ll be getting this:

People have apparently been calling the Apple Store for help with MacBooks and looking for the new iPhone. Store manager Diane Brenkus told WSAW, “And I have to explain to them these apples are what you eat. They don’t want me working on their computers anyhow.”

It’s an understandable mistake. If you’re from the area and in a rush, you’re probably just Googling something along the lines of “apple store greenbay.” Most people don’t read everything thoroughly nowadays, so they probably just see “Apple Store” and a phone number—not realizing it clearly says “Produce Market” and there are reviews for cider at the bottom of the listing.

Perhaps people should take a closer look before dialing in expecting some help from the Genius Bar, or else they’re most definitely not going to like the apples this store has in stock.
