Re: Over the counter foreign exchange at the Post?

They've always had Euro cash on hand in the post office (in fact a lot of the Postfinance ATMs dispense Euros) but I've never tried them on-the-spot for USD. However the Kantonalbanks have always had the sort of amount of USDs you are talking about in cash available instantly over the counter whenever I've needed it. The one exception I found to this was one day when the rate reached another record low, the local papers recommended anyone heading to the US for a holiday to buy dollars that day, and they ran out at our local Kantonalbank!
