Swiss immigrant Otto Zbinden, a general contractor and furniture repair craftsman, had this store built in 1915 to use as an office and workshop. In 1942, the store was purchased by Henry Fox, a Jewish man who escaped Nazi Germany. When Fox donated goods to Thomasville's adopted German city of Luneberg after World War II, the Mayor of Luneberg sent a letter to Fox apologizing for the Holocaust. His New York, New York Clothing Store operated there until 1973 when it became Jack's TV & Radio, which remained there until 1998. In 2014, the location was opened as Fuzzy Goat, a unique yarn shop with an eclectic lodge-like interior.
