Stew Leonard's Giant Lobster

The "largest dairy store in the world," Stew Leonards, has opened a store a bit closer to New York City, in suburban Yonkers. Here you'll find the craziness we've come to expect from the chain -- animatronic creatures singing songs about the food, model trains running above cashiers' heads, and one giant lobster (Larry) which is probably the size of a small bus.

Larry the Lobster was retired in 2012. "I think the weather just took a beating on ol' Larry," said a store spokesperson. "We had to take him down."
