    Anyone recommend a good brick and mortar store to buy iPhone cases and accessories? I know I could order one online but I feel like going shopping.

    Other than Best Buy and walmart

    The Apple Store (at least here in NYC) had a pretty good collection

    I have already looked at the apple stores here around Dallas and they were way overpriced.

    TJ-Maxx has quite a few cases and they're extremely cheap. They're the Griffin cases. I've bought quite a few there.

    x2 on buying one at TJ Maxx. I just bought a few today at Marshall's (A discount store similar to TJ Maxx) for $6.99-$9.99.

    they are all pretty good quality. most come with a case, screen protector, and a cleaning cloth.

    They also sell a ton of cheap (9.99-$19.00) car chargers, and kits that have car chargers, speakers, and a video-out cable for like $14.99.

    There's a ton of decent quality accessories at a super-cheap price.

    Yup! I was very excited to see quite a few cases for under $10 a TJ-MAXX. The same cases selling for more than $25 at other stores.

    Tj Maxx and Marshall's are owned by the same company, so you will probably see similar items...

    I went to the Verizon store for a case for my old ATT Curve.

    Would Storm cases work?

    Check out FRYS

    I'm in Irving Tx ad Frys had a pretty good selection of nice cases. I agree that apple charges wayyyy too much for there accessories.

    Good tips on TJ MAX. I'll have to check that out.

    Anyway, I found Apple Stores to have the best selection, but they're not even that great. You'd think this would be a mall kiosk gold mine.

    Yes. Try Them. What kind of question is that. Could you imagine all of the iPhone users complaining about x case scratching their precious babies.

    Find a Speck Candyshell or Incase Case at TJ Maxx, Ross, or Marshall's and I'll gladly go.

    I'll stick to online and Apple.

    I've bought a few for myself and my gf from www.mygearstore.com They carry a lot of the ones that are IMO better than what the Apple Store and Best Buy carry. Also, they Tweet discount coupon codes if you add them to your Twitter. Pretty cool.

    True. I just posted up other options for people that may not have a TJ Maxx near them, but may have a Marshall's.

    In case they hadn't thought of Marshall's before. And I actually found quite a larger selection at Marshall's vs. TJ Maxx near me. I dunno if Marshall's gets more stock of the stuff... or just less people buy there.

    Either way, good luck finding a cheap case! There are PLENTY out there. ;)
