What's happened to Movenpick Paradeplatz?

Used to be my favourite weekday lunch place and now it's boarded up. What the hell?

Re: What's happened to Movenpick Paradeplatz?

Their rental contract was expiring and the new rent was too high...

Quote:
Begründet werden beide Schliessungen mit den steigenden Mietzinsen. Am Paradeplatz etwa, wo die Mietvertrag ausläuft, wäre man offenbar gern weiterhin geblieben. «Die Verlängerung des Vertrages zu wirtschaftlich tragbaren Bedingungen war aber leider nicht möglich», schreibt Mövenpick.

Re: What's happened to Movenpick Paradeplatz?

Have the Mövenpick group been having trouble across the board?
After a few months of less-than-frequent visits to Zurich city centre, I was very disappointed to find the Marche in the HB has closed and is now a shoe shop.

I'll miss that salad buffet

They were closing up a couple of Mövenpicks as it states in an article from Tages-Anzeiger (26.02.2010).

Indeed.. much rather a pretty large, reasonably-priced eatery in the main train station than a sports shoe shop.
