"Stores"?! An English-language-watcher's report

Yep, as previously mentioned here, the English language keeps evolving.  Remember the old days, when pods held peas, rather than tunes?  :)

The latest change that I've noticed is the relatively-recent trend of calling bank branches "stores."  Does this usage reflect a change in the attitude of banks--are they now selling products rather than providing services?  And has this language change gone nationwide, or is it confined to the New York metropolitan area?

P.S.  See yesterday's update to my 2012 Parshat Noach post.
