If you are walking around this week, try looking at the outside of each shop for a notice displaying their Xmas opening hours. I know it's a bit retro, but its worked quite well for the last 50 years or so.

Re: What is the status of market from 25th to 31th?

many shops are open today Sunday 23 December. From what I have noticed most are closed on both 25 & 26 December.
It is better for the food shops to close for those 2 days, then people will buy more before.

No idea if anything open on 25 / 26, maybe a garage. Possibility in tourist towns some may open reduced hours

Have noticed some shops are closed 1st & 2nd January.

Stores open today [Sunday 23rd Dec]?

Hi all! Are all/most stores open today because Christmas is coming? Including supermarkets? Just checking with all you experts before I venture out. Thanks.

Re: Stores open today?

Well, I'm just back from both the Coop and Coop B/H. Not only are both open today, they are running an 'I (Heart) Sonntagsverkauf' promotion where one gets 10x Superpunkte at both.

So... as a blöde Auslander , I felt it my duty to do some Sunday shopping. I stocked up on groceries, OH bought himself a power tool toy (15% off with a B/H Supercard coupon as well), and we filled several sticker cards.

Open today until 18:00 - but check the Coop website to just make sure your local store is participating.

Stores open on Christmas Eve?

Just adding onto the other thread about whether stores are open...

I'm wondering if services like hair salons are open tomorrow. Aligro is open I see. Migros too I hope (not sure).

Thanks!

Re: Stored open on Christmas Eve?

Christmas Eve is not classified as a holiday in CH, so hair salons should be open. But because the 25th is a holiday, stores close early on the 24th (e.g. at 4 instead of 5 in the afternoon), so similar might apply to hair salons.

To confirm this regarding a specific salon, your best bet is always to check their website or give them a call.

Re: Are shops and businesses open 25th to 31st?

I've been tidying up a bit and have merged three threads together where people are asking which shops are open when.

For big chains, their websites are usually very clear, otherwise for smaller shops they should have opening times on their door.

I would assume that shops which are typically shut on Sundays will be shut 25th, 26th and 1st Jan. They may well shut early 24th and 31st.

Note that today (23rd) is a bit of a special one, as some shops typically shut on Sunday are open today, such as Aldi.

Embrace the technologie and use the App called SmartShopper from Comparis.
It tells you all the stores open around you and within Switzerland.
Here is a Snapshot
