Ebikon MPARC, as well as probably other MPARCs, will be open on Monday. Most MPARCs also sells groceries. The one in Ebikon will probably be packed, especially since half of it is closed-off for remodeling, but it is open.

If everything is closed, I will be determined to travel without limit to find the food I hope that the borders won't be closed though.

Re: Pfingsten / Whit Monday June 13th - don't forget to shop by tomorrow Sat

Hi,

Considering the long weekend, I went shopping at Migros today. But I forgot to collect half of the items from the counter after paying for them.I guess I was preoccupied with my toddler and thought that my husband would have collected the rest, but ultimately we ended up not picking up the stuff from the billing counter. Monday being a holiday, I wonder if it would be possible to collect the items on Tuesday.

Thanks

Hi, saksimi and welcome to the forum. It's a curtesy on newcomer's side to pop in the intro section to introduce yourself a bit here first

I would call the Migros as soon as possible and see if I can leave a message on the answering machine.

Cheers, MC

Is it only me who doesn't panic when the stores are closed for one day more than usual?

Given the level of panic buying I saw on Saturday in the big Coop near us, I would say most people treat the public holiday as some kind of siege and they must shop for all eventualities.

The shelves containing milk products were almost bare by 1pm.

I believe the Migros Take Away in Baden under the train station is open.

Years ago there was cause for panic. But now we have Pronto, Migrolino and of course, there is always airport shopping there is really no need for panic.

Just as on Sunday, there are pharmacies open as well for emergencies (surcharge may apply).

Yes, I know, I asked some Italian friends at a bike meet in Austria Saturday, and they told me that Italy is open today.

Monday is the day. Expect crowded trains from today Sat
