I think David247 has it. There's one dedicated camera store left in my part of suburban Detroit (There used to be 5). They carry Canikon, and then a very thin assortment of Olympus, Panasonic and Sony. It just costs too much to stock brands that are not popular with casual shoppers. Plus, a buyer who is interested in a slightly out-of-the-way model like the X100 or X10 is likely to be familiar with the big on-line stores, and the mom and pop place can't compete on price.

The other side of the coin is that distributors are not very interested in supplying stores that only sell one or two items a month.

The big box stores are part of the same process. They can sell 100 Canons for every Fuji, and they only care about numbers, whether it's cameras or televisions.
