Re: Coop or Migros?

I shopped at Migros when we first arrived, but Coop soon reeled me in with a certain brand of cereal. Which I no longer eat, but I stayed because of the sticker promotions (love those Swiss miles), the points (which saves me about 1K per year) and a new brand of cereal.

Everytime I try the local Migros it seems they have re-done the store layout. So I can't find what I am looking for, get frustrated, and go back to Coop.

The big retailers are only for basics, though.

For meat, I shop at the local butcher.

Bread, the local bakery.

Seasonal fruit, local farms

'Oops I forgot', the local Spar.

Aldi, the things I shouldn't eat. But at least I get them at a good price.

Bettio, Switzerland's best produce, always reliable. This is where I shop when planning a dinner party. Interesting collection of things you can't find anywhere else. (Today's find: unusual flavors of Etter. Gotta add a little kick to my homemade jams.)
