Jelmoli to close in 2024


The Board of Directors and Executive Board of Swiss Prime Site (SPS) have decided to convert the Jelmoli building on Bahnhofstrasse Zurich and to develop it further. The redevelopment is set to start from the beginning of 2025. Once completed, around 10,000m2 of refurbished premium retail floorspace will be available on the lower levels. Upper levels will be converted into high-end offices and public amenities such as fitness and restaurant facilities. The reopening is scheduled for the beginning of 2027.


Current Jelmoli CEO Nina Müller will hand over the reins of the department store by spring, or at the very latest by the end of June 2023. Reto Braegger, who is currently Chief Merchandise Officer, will take over Jelmoli’s leadership.
