Mark and I made our first trek to a mall yesterday. It is in a town called Crissier, and is only about 10 minutes by car. It is a large complex with lots of shops and a couple of grocery stores. Migros is one of the biggest chains of grocery stores in Switzerland. It is easily recognizable by the orange M that you see on the outside of the store. You can tell how big it is by the number of M's displayed. One M means only food, two Ms means food, kitchen, bathroom and other products. Three M's apparently means everything! This Migros was bigger than Costco and pretty much sold anything you can think of! It also had a huge sporting good and "do-it-yourself" section, which includes gardening and art supplies. We bought quite a few things for our new place, including a microwave, and I also got a tennis racquet! Love the triple M Migros!
