Shopping in Switzerland: what do you buy where?

Shopping in Switzerland: what do you buy where?

What are the main shops in Switzerland and where do you go for specific items? In this episode we go through the big name shops, what they sell and where you can find them, plus we talk about some smaller, specialised shops or boutiques, and what you can buy online. Find out about the classic out-of-town shops traditionally frequented by farmers which could be useful for you and the surprisingly affordable electronics.

Did you know we have a Facebook group? Switzerland for English Speakers is a great place to ask questions and share experiences. Have a look!
