Grocery Shopping Online with

Now that I'm a mother abroad, I do things I never did before: like order groceries online even though I live right across the street from a grocery store.

Not only is it a little harder to get out these days, but I also had a coupon for a CHF 30 discount if I ordered at least CHF 100 worth of stuff from To me, this coupon, along with Baby M, justified what could otherwise be viewed as complete and utter laziness. Also, as anyone that lives in Switzerland knows, it's not too hard to spend CHF 100 on groceries when maple syrup alone is CHF 7 and a six pack of Dr. Pepper is CHF 8.

Wait...Dr. Pepper?!!

Yes., which is Migros' online supermarket, has more selection than the actual store. For instance, you can buy wine, beer, and British food like American Doritos. Yes. I will forgive for categorizing Cool American Doritos, Cheerios, and Oreos as British food for the mere reason that they HAVE THESE PRODUCTS and I can order them. This is a major breakthrough for Switzerland and worth the CHF 15,90 delivery charge alone.

Also, they delivered the very next day, exactly when they said they would, between 5-8 pm, which was plenty of time for me to actually get dressed and look somewhat presentable, unlike the man from Die Post, who had the nerve to ring the bell at noon today when I was still in my circa 2001 plaid green pajama bottoms and bright blue and yellow Tweety slipper socks.

Anyway. Baby or not, I highly recommend shopping at Not only will you avoid having any Migros moments, but the website is even in English.

Anyone else have experience grocery shopping online in Switzerland?

I prefer Coop, as I like their products more. What's funny though, not everything from the shop is available online ;).
I think I'll give Migros a try!

Sounds terrific! I hate to shop and would rather order online.

I'll have to try Coop to compare the services. Just waiting for them to send me a coupon...

Wow, what a great coupon! I've only gotten ones in the mail for free shipping over minimum orders of 150 CHF or 10 CHF off minimum order of 100. I love that they have a few American products. I would have never guessed they did as I haven't tried online grocery shopping (yet).


Chantal said...

If anyone wants to get CHF 10 off their first five orders with and you're a new customer, they just sent me an email with a referral coupon. Just contact me privately and I'll give you the code.

I preferred shopping at the coop too. I once made a cart on coop@home but in the end never went through with it.

OK but I am blown away that they have poppycock carmel corn on leshop. If we still lived there I would of been all over that.

With Ribeyron, the designer hopes to apply the skills learned from product design — and use them to make things that people can actually shopping pakistan The brand’s fall 2016 collection, its second offering, features a deconstructed take on familiar, everyday objects. Earrings are made from strips of leather and perforated with rings; hardware-store plumbing clamps are reinterpreted as 18k-gold and rhodium screw bracelets; helmet bags are remade with industrial mesh into clutches.
