“Unzipping America since 1941.”


Eddie Feibusch sells zippers. He’s 86 and going into his 70th year in zipper sales — he opened his NYC store, ZipperStop, on the day Pearl Harbor was bombed.  Feibusch can sell you a 350 inch long zipper for wrapping a hot air balloon.  He can find the perfect match for a dress from the 502 colors he keeps in stock. He has so many zippers he doesn’t know how many he has, “more than a million.” And, just like mom, he says YKK is the best.
