Buying beer/wine in Lauterbrunnen on a Sunday?

We are arriving by train from Italy on Sunday Sept 30 (about 3:30p) and according to the Rick Steves' book it seems the markets in Lauterbrunnen are closed on Sundays? Is there any place else to buy some beer/wine or would we have a better chance during our connection in Interlaken? Thanks for the help!

You can certainly buy beer and wine at the shop at the Interlaken station. No problem as it is open 7/7. Lauterbrunen is very small and in late September a grocery store might or might not be open on a sunday afternoon. (They are allowed to open on Sundays in tourist areas but they stop this at the end of the season...exactly when I can't tell you!)

The shop is a very large Coop store right across the street from the small train station (Interlaken Ost). They have the best selection of beer and wine in the region along with a very good bakery, butcher shop, and great selection of produce. Trains run to Lauterbrunnen about every 20 minutes so take your time at the shop and catch a train at your leisure!

There is now a Coop within Interlaken Ost station which I imagine is open all the time. The large one may have restricted hours on a Sunday if it opens.

Last time I was there on a Sunday (by accident!) the station shop was open. I think it was an Aperto, but am not sure...

Best is to buy your stuff from Coop just outside Interlaken OST station, they have good selection of wine beer and cold cuts.

While in Lauterbrunen, there is a Coop which is shut on Sundays, there is a shop near right exit which is open on sundays till 6-6:30.

Also must visit - Horner's Pub, it's the best & only in town with a beer for 4 CHF.

The large Coop opposite Interlaken Ost station does not open on a Sunday even in the height of the season. It's restaurant is open though.

But is there a shop inside the station that would be open on a Sunday?

There is also a small shop selling wine and beer and food on the Jungfrau campsite in Lauterbrunnen. It's at the opposite end of the village to the station but is normally open in the morning and from about 4 until 7 at night. Prices are reasonable and similar to the Co Op
