I would look at the SBB office at a main train station or airport. See link here.
Also major banks have counters at Swiss airports as well. See our page on the Swiss Franc here.
Your best bet may be to just withdraw Swiss Francs from an ATM machine if and when you need it.
Most of the time I find I can use a debit or credit card in Zurich and other larger towns but I'd be wary in smaller communities and small shops. It still surprises me when they don't accept them! It isn't as common here as North America. It annoys me to no end!
Most of the time you will be ok though I would always keep some Swiss Francs on me when travelling and I usually ask stores/restaurants in smaller areas if they accept credit or debit cards before buying anything.
Hope that helps, another member might have another preferred shop for cash exchanging as well.
