'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 have never been so appalled by not only TMZ for trying to make this a headline but the rude comments to follow...I take it none of the people on here are even from NJ ...I am and this is apart of my livelihood. The jersey shore cast , as dumb as they may be and as wealthy as they have become have nothing to do with the natural disaster that has effected the entire NJ shoreline. People do not have homes to live in and yet here you are bashing on the state and seaside. Get a clue and help your country's people instead of being ignorant pieces of ****! This is NJ's Katrina ...so stop being childi*****his one picture does not depict the damage done to NJ..so keep your stupidity to yourself! turn on the news maybe use google for something useful and see what is really going on!

It's pretty sad that a lot of you people have negative things to say because of a stupid show that happens to be in New Jersey. " So, what you're saying is that it took a super storm to clean up Jersey?" People have lost their lives and homes and everything they own. It's really devastating for a lot of everyday people. Also, the shore is a childhood memory for most New Jersey, Pa, & NY residents. We know it as more then a TV show. Get a life and a heart. Try showing some compassion instead hurling insults about the stupid jersey shore cast memebers. Most likely your jealous because they made millions off of acting stupid and partying.

I don't think a T-Shirt store qualifies as "heartbreaking damage".

Maybe it's GOD's way of saying 'enough of this crap,' but I still don't get why he would allow there to be so many seasons of Jersey Shore :)
