Where to buy fan?

I think considering the hot weather nowadays, the most desired item is probably the fan.

Anyone has success buying a fan in Zürich area...? All shops I asked said all sold out...

Maybe these are still available.
Not Zurich, but not too far away.

Is it sold under Coop itself or other seller like Fust etc.? What is the price range if I may ask...

Re: Where to buy fan?

I think you can still get the Dyson fans.
They cost 300 or 400+ CHF though.

Or just drink and sweat more.

My GF asked me to get her one from Fust on Friday. The one she wanted was sold out. The salesman told me that they had sold 175 fans that day alone - this is the tiny little Fust by the carwash in Regensdorf.

Re: Where to buy fan?

You could try using toppreise

http://en.toppreise.ch/index.php?sea...rch=Toppreisse

Its a shop comparison site for switzerland, which may be useful and someone might have a fan. But maybe by the time it arrives it will already have cooled down.

In any case there are other ways to stay cool (typing from my cold bath),

Re: Where to buy fan?

A 20 Minutes article describes the run on fans due to the heat wave. Several readers comment on where fans were in stock on Monday or will be available shortly:

Conrad in Emmenbrücke should have fans again on Wednesday:
"War heute bei Conrad in Emmenbrücke. Ventis sind da ab morgen wieder verfügbar. Im Shop sollen ab morgen sogar wieder Klimageräte zu haben sein."

Fust in Bülach, Marktgasse should have 90 fans on Thursday, assortment unknown:
"Hallo zusammen Nur als Info: ab Donnerstag sind Ventis in der Fust Filiale Bülach an der Marktgasse verfügbar, man sagte mir man rechne mit ca. 90 Ventis, Sorte unbekannt."

Jumbo, St Gallen had fans in stock on Monday:
"Einziger Laden in der gesammten Region St.Gallen war der Jumbo Markt, welcher noch in Massen Ventilatoren verkauft."

Interdiscount, e.g., Letzipark, had fans on Monday:
"Im Interdiscount (z.b: Letzipark) gibt es noch Stapelweise. Stand heute."

Landi had fans on Monday:
"im Landi haben sie noch viele"

Re: Where to buy fan?

Careful if in migros electronics, if they don't have in stock their standard answer is " sold out in whole of Switzerland "
