Coming to Zug soon

Hello all!
I will be moving from the US in a couple weeks. I accepted a job in Baar earlier this year and my Visa just got approved. Iíve been lurking here in the meantime and the forum is very insightful. Iím sure Iíll have a few questions over the next few months!

I have to go into a 10-day quarantine upon arrival, in a temporary apartment in Zug. Do any local grocery stores have delivery service? Iíve been advised to check with Coop.

Cheers!

Welcome!

For ideas to cope with quarantine, have a look at this thread (and the help to which it links):

Re: Coming to Zug soon

Welcome to the forum and soon to Zug! Yes the two big supermarkets (COOP and Migros) do home delivery. Note that Migros does not sell alcohol.

If you find yourself in a complete bind, Iím sure one of our forum members could also help out!

Iím also in Zug, so if you need any advice or have any questions please feel free to reach out.

Re: Coming to Zug soon

Just be aware that delivery times can be slow, not the same-day service you might be used to back home. So you might consider bringing some staples with you, just in case.

Good luck with the move.

Re: Coming to Zug soon

Welcome to the EF & Switzerland! I hope you bring along some good books (or access to movies/tv shows) for the ten days, and come out relatively sane.

Yes, the two big supermarkets have delivery, as others have said.

There are other companies which also deliver special food, such as the British Cheese Centre for real cheese (and some other "essentials", like good beer and port) & the Pie Tribe for a range of genuine meat pies, with delicious, crisp pastry and amazing fillings.
Expensive, as many things are in Switzerland, but well worth the price as a special treat!

Re: Coming to Zug soon

Thanks everyone for the welcomes and the information!

Iíll be sure to read the other thread on grocery/food delivery options and try to get something set up before I arrive. And Iíll see what staples I can bring through in my luggage. Or buy a bunch of chocolates at the airport

Cheers!
