There are gas stations here in Switzerland that sell groceries (including meats, pastas, salads, etc.) that are open on Sundays. e.g. Migrolino.
They are unlikely to have a bigger/better selection than the in-resort Coop that the OP mentioned is open till 6pm on Sunday, nor be somewhere they can do a big shop. To help the OPís expectations: Iíve never seen one anything like as well stocked as the Waitrose/M&S Simply Food stores you get at some UK service stations.

Yes just checked the places I had in mind en route and all closed! Will have to stop off in France after the Eurotunnel.
I'll be interested to know how it goes on the Eurotunnel. I'll be heading to the UK next month.

Yes definitely- we're going to a place where the Coop closes at 6pm on Sundays and the Migros is closed- so will try to pick up some provisions for the first dinner in one of the bigger places on the way earlier on.
Coop open on Sundays? Where would that be?

Many places. Interlaken, for example, has two open on Sundays.
