I remember going to a Xerox store in '85 and buying a brand-new Macintosh.

Nope--they were real. I recall that the one I visited wasn't that far 
from the Moore Business Products store. 

As I mentioned, CDC had storefronts--I still have a Wren II SCSI drive 
that I picked up at the Twin Cities store liquidation. 

TI had a store in the Stanford shopping center.
