Confused be I (Coop home delivery)

Browsing the English Forum this evening when I notice, and click on, an ad for the Coop @ Home service professing "Now in English! For the gift of time". I thought to meself "they've seen sense and are going for the part-time auslander expat audience at last". Only it isn't! - the available languages are De/Fr/It as usual. Is this a case of chicken before the egg?

The site is currently down for maintenance. Maybe they are "installing" the Swissish-to-English babelfish?

Your guess was right on! They are back online, with an English version.

Apparently tomcat was right, as the site now features "En" as the fourth option, and it works just fine.

Edit: Somehow, I didn't see RetiredInNH's post; sorry for the dupe!

I really love their FREE section. Besides some info material no one really needs, they also have some cookies and chocolates

Re: Confused be I (Coop home delivery)

I noticed leshop had an English option but still had to search in the native language

c@h is still working on the product names, so though you can search and get some results - it will be better within a few weeks.

Re: Confused be I (Coop home delivery)

Good news indeed - although I think le shop's options of British goodies are better (i.e. including PG Tips, custard powder, marmite and cheese & onion crisps).

Re: Confused be I (Coop home delivery)

I suppose the advantage of an online shop is that they could theoretically offer everything, a very wide product range - like amazon seems to.

It could be viable to import favorites from France, Italy, Germany, the UK, US, Australia etc especially if they are using one warehouse to serve the whole of Zürich. Even if it involved perishables, a customer base of 2 million should make it profitable.

Here was me thinking the advantage of online shopping was that you don't need to go out to the supermarket to do your shopping

Re: Confused be I (Coop home delivery)

Hallelujiah,

It seems the Swiss Coop website is really catching up fast.
I went on the www.coop.ch website this morning and it's very progressive.
Look at this photo from the homepage this morning.

Name:  Ginger.jpg
Views: 580
Size:  9.4 KB

They are directly marketing to minorities.
Ginger (bread) men and a white gender realligned dude with a big black erm ....... a big smile on his face along with his (I can only guess) naked gay pals.
What the heck were the web-designers on when they posted that picture? if the OP is confused, spare a thought for the web designers
