Send them an email and ask how you can pay/collect. Otherwise you have no choice but to buy on line, or do what Ork says.

"In that case, look for a microcontroller that you can buy locally. The Arduino is one of many protoboards; it just happens to be a fairly versatile and (if you don't insist on a physical store) widely available one."

You can also make your own clone board, if you have access to a tool that can program ATmega 168V

 thank you for all the answers but i found this site called rs-components that import the arduino board straight from their main store in the uk and then i can go and fetch the arduino from their Capetown store
