Custom iMac

So I want to buy an iMac, but I'd rather have it with the numerical keyboard than the default wireless one. That is the only modification I want to make, but even that alone takes like 5 days longer to get it shipped to me (Canada).
Can I go to an apple store and just buy a new iMac but ask to replace keyboards? Will I be charged the price of the keyboard ($49) or will they replace it with the wireless one included in the box for free?

You will have to buy it separately if you want the different keyboard instore.

I bought an iMac last year. I walked into the Apple store, picked what I wanted. Said I wanted the numeric keypad keyboard (wired). They said sure, but may cost a bit.
It cost me a $1 or there abouts.

Just go in and ask.

Buy the wired separately and sell the wireless when it's still wrapped in plastic, it should go for around 60$ so you will win 11$
