Zurich – Shopping Off the Beaten Track

Hi There!

We all love shopping right – but these days who has time to saunter aimlessly around town in the hope of discovering something new and exclusive? Not many of us I am sure.

My guess would be that this is one of the reasons internet shopping has become such a favourite past time – but don’t you really miss meeting up with friends and going shopping around town?

This is where the lovely new site www.storesandgoods.com  is the perfect solution for anyone shopping in Zurich. Should you be running short of time or new to town, this is a great site to scan quickly before any shopping tour.


So how does it work? Stores and Goods is a platform with carefully selected stores – not franchises – that are in Zurich. Each store places 4 new items on the page per month – ready for potential shoppers to view.


Zurich – Shopping off the beaten track

1,2,3, steps to using this cool new site:

1. Log into Stores and Goods and scroll through their goods.



2. Lets decide we would like to buy the booties shown – double click on the booties:



3. Now we can simply click on reserve to reserve the item ready to pick up another day or we can find out more about the store itself such as location and opening times.


I see the shop is called G31, it’s going to open at 9:30 in the morning and there is a little map showing it’s exact location. The map is totally interactive so if you click on it, it will find your current location and direct you to where you need to go.


This is what happened when Five Funky Women decide to test storesandgoods.com one Saturday:

First stop coffee and coissant’s at Maison Gassman





Should Brenda buy the skirt?


Love the touch of faux fur Myrta!


Then off to Maud




Next stop Salvatore Schito



Love the dog – not sure he was impressed about us disturbing his sleep mind you 😉



Final stop the lovely Spitzenhaus Perfume Shop





Time to leave and do our regular Saturday chores now, but that was a fun 2 hours!
