If you're looking for speed cubes specifically you will not find any stores in North America. The best you'll find is Rubik's brand and if you're super duper fortunate you'll find V-cubes at a random puzzle store in a mall.

Did you know I opened the first physical speed cube store in North America? It lasted for 7 months and I had to close due to a chain of unfortunate events. I will open another type of store in a couple of years. I would like to start a small Kiosk in Chicago in the future though. :)

There's a store called Marbles: The Brain Store that sells V-cubes somewhere in Downtown. There's also a game store (like board games and stuff) in Woodfield mall that sells v-cubes too. Those stores sell Rubik's brand stuff too.

So I checked out marbles in downtown Chicago and the only cube related stuff were v5 for 40.00 , both versions of the v2 and rubiks brand 3x3s. I didnt get any thing but it was nice to at least see vcubes in the store.
