Pet Store Close To Zurich HBF or Bahnhofstrasse?

I've looked on QualiPet.ch, etc. and I haven't been able to figure it out since I'm not familiar with the city. I am starting my job in Zurich but live in Basel and I need a place close to work to grab Royal Canin food on my way home for my kitties.

Thank-you!

A new qualipet opened up in Limmatplatz and that is the nearest one to HB that I can think of.

5-10 minutes max tram ride (trams 4 and 13) from Zurich Hb. Tram stop: Limmatplatz.

ps: Can you get what you need from Migros or even Coop? Both of them are within walking distance of the HB.

Raible Zoohandlung is a well-stocked pet shop just off Bahnhofstrasse. It's next to Restaurant Hiltl and a few steps away from the Jelmoli park garage. St. Annagasse is the name of the side street.

Sadly Coop or Migros doesn't sell the food they eat. If the Qualipet in Basel HBF could stay open till 7:00-7:30 pm I could make it, but alas they close at 6:30 like everywhere else in Switzerland. One day I'll get used to it!

The Qualipet at Limmatplatz (2 stops from Zurich main station) closes at 7pm.

There's also a garden store in the main station that closes at 9pm. It has some pet foods (big brands) and isn't bad for the last minute buys.

If you go down the steps from Bahnhofquai tram stop (trams 4/11/13/14 - direction away from the center) into the tunnel towards the HB, you'll see it at the bottom of the steps.

It's worth checking out.

Qualipet also delivers, which could be helpful if you can get packages delivered to work or the post office is near your place...
