I was in the shop at Buckfastleigh a couple of weeks ago whilst on holiday. They were very helpful to someone who is only just starting and didn't mind being asked pretty basic questions. The SDR was a good trip out too; in fact my wife enjoyed it so much she has suggested we go on the Llangollen railway tomorrow.

There's a model railway shop that's part of the station complex at York and a decent one in the unused platform at Carnforth called Bay Models.

There's one on Aviemore station, but I guess that's because the Strathspey Railway is there.

Just on the station. It's on the platform between the main line and the preserved line. I think it may be part of the souvenir shop for the Strathspey Railway; I haven't actually been inside, I've seen it from the train.

There is a good one across the road from the Grosmont station on the North Yorkshire Moors Railway. I assure you that both are well worth a visit! :D

the Shops at Kidderminster and at the engine house on the Severn Valley have Hornby and Bachmann models for sale,

The Shop at Didcot has a few limited edition models in stock

I think most Preserved railways and railway centers have shops that have models for sale

hope this helps

It is something that is more common in Europe, with Munchen Hbf having a large model shop, and various other stations having them too.

I think it is seen in the US too, iirc Washington Union had / has one?

There are a few model railway items in the gift shop, adjacent to the railway, [not sure if there's a station there], at Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch

Pug, I hope you are Welsh or have at least learned to pronounce Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch. Otherwise I think you should stay in and keep the doors bolted next St David's day :)
