Obi and Jumbo are not that expensive. Both usually have a wide range of whatever you might need for DYI

Re: OBI or COOP or JUMBO

I'll sell you a plug for only CHF 45. PM me.

Or you could go to any of those places you mentioned and buy one for CHF 1. For non-Swiss electrical items (and everything else), go to France.

If you do shop in Switzerland, personally I see little difference between OBI and Jumbo (unless Cumulus points are important to you). Generally, they have a larger range than Co-Op Bau+Hobby (or whatever they're called in Romandie), although some Co-Ops are very large, too.

I went to OBI in Konstanz at the weekend and was generally impressed with the range of items and the prices. Some prices were reasonably comparable to UK prices.

Re: OBI or COOP or JUMBO

The only problem I have with OBI is that I am not too impressed with their quality. The tools they sell are mediocre at best, and they do not offer nicer stuff...

Conrad.ch ? They have stores as well.

Not sure what it is that you need, but I'd say you can find normal switches for less than 50 CHF.

For electrical stuff, Conrad is the best.
