Incase, you dont't know, Microsoft launched a chain of stores around the US, so far there are 14 locations in total. below:
I happened to visit one of these stores and i was really impressed with the environment, the level of professionalism of the staff, they really knew what they were talking about and thats what really stands out about these stores.
you can demo/buy Laptops, Desktops, Windows Phones (though no Lumia device yet) and enjoy xbox360 kinect and demo games too, and the staff is always an arms length away to answer any questions.
Being in this store, made me wonder if nokia has any plans of opening stores (apart from the new york location) soon, it would only make sense to do so, if they want to make an impact in the US market.
Microsoft plans to open more stores, so if there isn't one near you, be patient, it will happen
check out my sights & sights from one of the microsoft stores:
