Why is everything closed today?

I just went down to the Coop at Bellevue, the one that is always open on Sundays, and it was closed! I also noticed that several restaurants that are usually open on Sundays were closed is well. Does anyone know what's going on? I've tried searching for the answer, but haven't found anything...
Thanks!

Are you sure that you're not mixing up the days? Coop at Bellevue is always closed on Sundays and so are many restaurants in Zurich as well.

Maybe she means the Coop at Stadelhofen? It should be open today, and is according to the Coop website.

It's not the Coop RIGHT off of Bellevue, but just a few meters away. And yes, it's always open on Sundays.

Also, I just went to the HB and the Migros there is open...

Yes, it's the Coop at Stadelhofen. It was closed when I just went and it's supposed to be open at 7am on Sunday. Strange.

So HB is open therefore the post can be closed

I think they're not allowed to open the entrance towards Stadelhoferstrasse on Sundays so maybe that was confusing? Did you check the other entrance downstairs?

Small village up t'mountains - local cornershop/supermarket opened from 6-12, same for baker's across the road - just sayin' as it would be helpful to get a location for these sorts of posts + sales, to give away, etc

It's because it's the middle Sunday between St. David's Day and St. Patrick's Day.

Sometimes closed is the entrance from the street-side, so that you have to enter via the station

No problem, you have the choice to shop on Saturday or Monday because ~98% of the shops are closed on Sunday
