Re: Coop at Home. Not currently an option

Have had deliveries last few weeks and one more coming on Tuesday. Been trying to get the next delivery booked for the week of 30th March since Wednesday but getting the same message too. I’ve tried my mother in law’s adddress in Zug, and our 3 previous addresses all along the silver coast in Zurich, and getting the same message.

I assume it’s booked out till mid-April like Farmy...

Right now Coop's delivery infrastructure is completely overwhelmed with the sudden huge volume of orders.
Our local Coop was very quiet yesterday when we went there at 11:30am. It's limited to 100 customers, but the queue was small - and not waiting for people to come out before people could go in.

The shelves were stocked, but not full. My guess is this is not due to diminishing supplies, but rather few shoppers. I'd also guess that they're restocking the shelves rather more slowly.

My daughter went in at 19:00 last night and there were no other customers there. Picked up some great reductions.

Re: Coop at Home. Not currently an option

Looks like even Farmy has been overwhelmed. The first delivery date in my area, and a few others I checked in the ZH metro area, is 15 April.

Mine is limited to 200 customers and the calculation is based on floor space, with signs explaining this everywhere. They give you a numbered card as you go in, but not before showing you the hand sanitizer bottles and gloves are provided.

It was the usual number of customers and I thought it was better stocked than normal especially with pasta being piled up in one corner. I don’t mind not being able to use Coop@home if it stays this way.

Sell it on Ebay? (Hoarders and profiteers will be shot...)

At our local COOP last Saturday, all the fresh veg was cleared out. Either someone has a very big cold room, or they're going to have an expensive shock in a few days.
To think charitably, maybe the big-shopper was shopping for a neighborhood. I live next to a group home for disabled adults. There are about 10-15 disabled plus the live-in caretakers, all eating together.

Perhaps if a few more people who don't need to use Coop@home went and shopped locally it wouldn't strain the shops, but would free up Coop@home to those who really need it.

Honestly, I don't mind going to the shops, I wish they would reserve home deliveries for those at risk

Totally agree. There are also a ton of farm shops or hofladen for those who can get out and about that deserve our support. In our region between Albis and Knonau there are at least 15 farm shops I can think of. If you head towards Baar there are also few on the outskirts hidden on the right in the dip before you reach the brewery/swimming pool. Most of them rely on an honesty system and offer products like apple juice, cider, fresh eggs, meat, bread, apples, chutney, honey, schnapps, compost etc.

Personal favourite is the Hofladen of the Stiftung Weid in Rossau which gives those with mental disabilities a way back into society with residential care and the chance to work on the farm tending for the animals etc. They sell all their veggies and meat etc plus other products at a shop on the farm - so your money supports a worthy cause too. Be warned it's not cheap (this is Switzerland after all) but everything is bio and the quality/provenance is fantastic. The potatoes they have make amazing double fried chips ;-)

Yup, trying to order for my mother-in-law. She's a heavy smoking +70 year old who lives alone. But now I will just deliver stuff to her myself, no problem.

I agree.
I have been going to the shop to buy fresh stuff and supplies as and when I need it but limiting it to once or twice a week.

Early mornings were good at first but now mid morning, mid afternoon or early evening seem to be best. Everybody appears to be going early in the morning now.

Re: Coop at Home. Not currently an option

Mind you, having said that, I find myself getting (irrationally) anxious when I'm in the supermarket... so I'm leaving it to my wife and daughters.

I wonder how many agoraphobes might be produced by social distancing?

I have to agree. I shop at the local Coop on the corner, which is very nice but small. It is almost impossible to keep 2m distance in the aisles to either staff stocking or to other customers. People try though (at least some of us). The only way to circumnavigate leaving the self-checkout section is by walking about 50cm apart from the person paying at the Kasse. There would be a slightly walk-around route to the exit, but no-one pays attention to that.

It appears now that I am also in a high-risk group, as I take medication for high-blood pressure, although I’m otherwise fully healthy (and a few years away from 65) so try to stay at-home as much as I can stand.

Giving-up power-walking daily, tennis at least once a week, meeting a friend occasionally is going to be extremely hard, but I do not want to end-up on a breathing machine under anesthesia, not knowing if I’m going to wake-up or say goodbye to my loved ones

At least I work from home.

I was on ACE inhibitors. My doc has taken me off them, and depending what happens in the next week or so, if I need them, he's prescribed Indapamide.

This is because it's postulated that ACE inhibitors may stimulate ACE2 receptors, which is how the virus gains access to your body. My doc stressed that the evidence isn't that convincing, but there's no evidence against it either.

But if you're on ACE inhibitors, talk to your doc before stopping.

Manor Food Catalogue

Hi

Found this and wanted to share, it seems they do deliver.

Anyone already tried this and have had success?

Thank you so much! I read this as well, but didn’t want to bother my doctor with a call to ask if I could be in a high-risk category as my blood pressure levels are healthy with the meds, as they surely have enough to do. But will do tomorrow. My BP is increasing each day that I don’t do something healthy, so am now focusing on other work-outs on the balcony

First point in links top right is language choice. What's difficult?

OP linked directly to a pdf, for which their choice was German.
Should you not have found the French one yet

@OP, I didn't know Manor delivers food. Is it only now? So, I have no experience but I don't see there should be a problem, unless they are overwhelmed with orders like many others.

No, they've been doing home delivery for at least several years now. Never actually used them (I _enjoy_ grocery shopping, and don't enjoy Manor's prices) but looked into it for beer a couple of times, but their threshold for free delivery is chf100, so I never bothered.

Yes, beer. They do 500mk bottles of Charles Wells' Bombardier for just chf2.83. Bargain. I always suspected that someone had screwed up on the prices, but it's been that way for around 3 years that I know of.
