Giant Shark Store Entrance

Field review by the editors.

Garden City Beach, South Carolina

Live Sharks! promises the sign in front of Jaws Resort Wear, and to stress the point the store makes its shoppers enter through the mouth of a 50-foot-long fiberglass shark. The shark was created by Bob Duato of Myrtle Beach, and was given unnaturally sensitive eyes -- perhaps to allay the fears of customers who might not otherwise be eager to wander down a predator's gullet.

Jaws Resort Wear also has live iguanas, but its owner wisely promotes the sharks.
