DIY Stores

Hi,

I am moving to Switzerland this week. I will be living in Kussnacht am Rigi (mid way between Zug and Luzern) and have a few questions ...

Are there are any DIY stores around (for example B&Q in the UK)?
Names and locations would be greatly appreciated.

Where is the nearest Ikea to me? Would that be the one in Zurich?

Where is the best place to go looking for a used car to buy?

Many thanks!

Re: DIY Stores

In my neck of the woods there is the Jumbo, the Co-op supermarket who have great do it yourself stores and the Migros supermarket also have DIY stores.

Co-op & Migros are everywhere and in most large towns have their own DIY stores

Re: DIY Stores

Hi there!
Possibly loads of folk will come up with the answers, but it might help to have a map
You can Google for shops etc. and then enter them on the other map to see which is nearest.
I think the Do it Yourself Stores here tend to be called just ‘Do it’ but probably someone who ‘does it him/herself’, will give more advice here. The Mythen Center is the only one I know in your area as the Emmen Center doesn’t seem to have that sort of thing. Sorry I can’t be more helpful.
