Did you try Interdiscount in HB (not sure if they sell bulbs but worth giving a try)?

Re: where can i get a lightbulb

Go to France? Oooops, no acutally, all the shops are closed there too. You could have got one or more from our village supermarket- it is always opened on a Sunday am, and they sell anything you want, from brown sugar to knicker elastic.

Re: where can i get a lightbulb

I bet the intelligent folks at Mercer all had spare lightbulbs when they've conducted their study.

Re: where can i get a lightbulb

Check at the Coop Pronto at Barfüsserplatz, they have some "random" things, maybe lightbulbs are included?

Also, there is a "Migros Partner" thingie that's closer up by me - past Kannenfeldplatz, I want to say near Luzernerring (follow the path of 36 / 50 bus and you should see it), which is also open on Sundays. I've never been in there so have no idea what they carry.


Oh, just occurred to me that I'm not sure if Phil is in Zürich or Basel these days - ah well. Suggestions remain.

Re: where can i get a lightbulb

At first I thought this was a spoof on the many "Where can I find brown sugar (or whatever)" posts, then I realized that today is Sunday

Re: where can i get a lightbulb

OK. Coop was closed. Interdiscount didn't have any. But Migros HB did! I was just unable to find them without help! At least I don't need to live in the dark tonight!

Glad you found some!

Did you happen to buy an extra or two, just in case you needed one on a Sunday again?
