Default Lack of cases in my area

Is it just me or is this for everyone, but 3 out of 3 Verizon stores in my area don't have a single case for this phone, neither does best buy.. I live in Mankato, MN. I just find that really strange.. I hate not having any protection for my phone.. just ordered an otterbox on eBay. hopefully I don't break the phone before hand, ha
