I'd say the closest thing to a "convenience store" (as I would describe it) that I've seen in Switzerland is Coop, especially the smaller ones and/or those that are also gas/petrol stations (as Jana mentioned). Is there a general name for this, besides Tankstelle or Coop?convenience shop/store ==> Tante-Emma-Laden, in der Schweiz: Dorfladen, Quartierladen (in der Stadt)
Well, yes, but no one ever said a "convenience store" had to be consumer-friendly. I would call both a Shell station (so similar to Coop) and a local mom-and-pop store (so Tante-Emma-Laden) "convenience stores," insofar as they both are small but at the same time carry all the basic essentials that one would need in a store (so a fine gamut of things), despite the fact that perhaps the mom-and-pop store may be friendlier/warmer and the Shell station colder/more commercialized/less consumer-friendly.Coop is a brand. As just two brands (Coop and Migros) monopolize (or rather duopolize) much of the retail business in Switzerland, you easily get the impression Coop or Migros were just normal words. Not very consumer-friendly.
