Does any shop open on today? (As I just learnt that today is a holiday)

I was just told that today is a holiday in Switzerland. I am still confuse that sometimes shops (I mean supermarkets in general) do open on holidays and sometimes don't. So are there anyway for me to find out online if shops are open on some days? Or is there such a categorization of big or small holidays in Switzerland?

Thanks!

Chances are the only shops you'll find open are at train stations or at garages. If you've got a choice of garages, Co-op ones are a lot cheaper than Shell or BP for food and things.

Besides Zurich main station and airport (both mentioned above), also open everyday are motorway service centers. Close to Baden is the motorway bridge at Wurenlos.
