Is there a place to search for game stores (shops not internet sites)?

I usually go to Google Maps and search "Game Stores". That actually gives me pretty good results (just watch out for Video Game only stores).

Obviously some of these are video game stores. Also, I think BGG has a list somewhere...

(used to be a menu pick here, but it disappeared.)

I think you will be interested in a hobby shop in downtown Charlottesville that has muliple storage racks displaying Euros.

One way is to use the retailer location functions on some manufacturers' websites.

Sure the store might *just* carry M:tG or DnD4e if it's listed on the WOTC site, and may just carry 40k if listed on the GW site, but those lists provide a starting point for researching store locations.
Yellow pages are also a source - although a bit "old school".
