Hassle-free returns for german online shopping?

Every now and then I buy a few things at discounted online stores like de.buyvip.com and zalando lounge.

Right now I will take all packages to Switzerland with me, try things on, print out return label for things that did not fit, and then go back to Germany to send returns back.

Is there a better way of doing this? I'm looking for a way to eliminate the second trip. Is there a place where I could try things on in piece, then have access to a printer to get my return labels, and stop by post to send whatever did not fit back?

For example, I've seen that LAS-Burg made a tiny fitting room, and I think they also have computers (not sure about a printer). I'm using grenzpaket for german address but would be happy to switch to another provider.

Hope someone can help!

Hmmm, that's a great idea - why didn't I think of that? I wish they did not go for CHF 200+.

Opposite the Hauptstrasse LAS Burg office in Weil am Rhein, you'll find a pharmacy/health food shop, Drogerie Rühle. They have a computer and printer available to the public for a very modest fee (cents rather than euros).
