Normally in Zurich all shops are shut on a Sunday and if you want to shop your main port of call is Zurich Airport, where all the shops are open 365 days a year or Migros or Coop at Zurich Hauptbahnhof, Coop at Stadelhofen or some of the larger railway stations like Uster Bahnhof, for example.

However, over the Christmas period the shops in Zurich implement “Sunday Shopping” or Sonntagsverkauf on selected Sundays before Christmas. The dates do vary depending on which shopping centre you are visiting.
