'Jersey Shore' Store

CRUSHED

By Hurricane Sandy

The boardwalk t-shirt store made famous by "Jersey Shore" has been RAVAGED by Hurricane Sandy -- torn open like a sardine can -- and TMZ has a photo of the heartbreaking damage.

A source close to the owner of the Shore Store tells TMZ, the storm caused severe water damage to a lot of the merchandise -- including t-shirts and jewelry display cases -- as well as screen printing equipment.

But we're told the worst damage of all was to the rolling steel doors in front of the shop, which were bashed in by Sandy's extremely strong winds. Each door costs several thousand dollars.

The boardwalk itself was also torn asunder by the storm, as you can see in the picture.

The "Jersey" shore cast all tweeted their concerns during the storm yesterday, claiming they couldn't believe the extent of the damage.

I was excited when I heard but the picture shows little damage. It would have been better if the cast were inside and died.

If he didn't remove all his merchandise in the several days prior to the hurricane, then he deserves what he got. How long did he have, like a week? That's long enough to get the valuables out and lock that cast inside. Just tell them free booze.......

My Aunt who has lived in Seaside for as long as I can remember has nothing but love for MTV's Jersey Shore. Her jewelry shop, which has never even been on "Jersey Shore", went from the brink of bankruptcy to now turning a profit because of them. Even when the cast is not there filming, people still flock to see where this is filmed and has cause a lot of small business owners to profit like my aunt. They truly saved the "Jersey Shore" economy. Sad to see that this hurricane has damaged something that has brought 5 years of foot traffic and hope that they dont close for good.
