    Hi


    I've visiting the US in a few weeks and will be trying to hunt down some of the cases shown on the site - which stores in the US stock the best selection - I'll mainly be in Delaware and Virginia. I know I can buy online but a lot of the time the shipping is expensive and I like to see them first. In the UK we mainly have the apple store and the random electronic shops - but the choice is limited unless you like Belkin or Griffin.

    Cheers

    Normally, retail stores do NOT carry the higher end brands or the knock-offs like ElementCase's Vapor Pro/Comps, or the El3ctron cases or the Deff Cleave cases. You have to order these directly from the manufacturer's websites. Unless you are talking about knock-offs/fakes, then you need to look on ebay.
    The Apple store will sell the basic Otterboxes and BookBook type cases as well as some Incipio and InCase cases, but you also can get a lot of those at Walmart, Target etc, etc like everyone else said.

    The local stores for iPhone accessories I've been to were only mall cart! there are several of them, but not definitely brand or high quality stuff. If you are looking for brand ones, check out best buy or radio shack.

    If you want a high-end case, you'll have to order it online. I've never seen a Vapor or Element case in person at a store. Hell, I haven't even seen Switcheasys in stores.

    Apple stores have some nice cases from otterbox, speck, incipio, incase, Bookbook, and even the graft leverage. I've also seen cases like the lifeproof at ATT and Verizon shops.

    Target and Walmart will have some of these also, but honestly the best selection will be at apple stores. Some of the shadier electronic shops in major cities (like NYC) may have knockoffs.

    Many manufactures website include licensed dealers either there website or where you can buy in retail stores. Try a Apple store of course. you can always email the manufacturer as well. some cases are only available though them. I checked for Vapor pro doesn't look like it's available through retail. personally I stay away from aluminium cases I am yet to find one that doesn't cause at least some signal loss.
