    We have them everywhere in the UK too....... I suspect certain countries have certain laws that explicitly allow right to repair. When it comes to China they just don't care, they do what they want.

    "Allow"? Don't you mean "mandate"?

    We have them all over where I live as well(US, AK). They are in standalone shops/buildings, Malls/Mall kiosks.
    I have seen repairs from these shops turn out very well to being extremely poor. Missing screws, sub-par replacement parts, etc.

    What?

    I'm pretty sure there's no countries that mandate you must have repairs done by a third party instead of the original manufacturer.

    "right to repair" means that people should be able to get something fixed by a third party. So the manufacturer would have to provide parts and documentation.
