Do the Apple Retail Stores have the GSM unlocked iphone 5s?

What the title says. Do I have to order it online or can i get it at an apple store?

Also, I've read that they give u at least something if you trade in your iPhone 4S. Is that true?

Yes they sell them unlocked.

Yes they do. But the Apple store will not give you any money for your 4S. Try gazelle or a radio shack.
