I would recommend Game Daze. They have five locations in Phoenix listed just below and have a decent selection of Euro's. What's better is if they don't have it the can order it for you pretty quickly.

I agree with the first two replies but there is also Outpost Games on Thunderbird. They have a big stock and seem to have a lot of game nights. [I am, unfortunately, 140 miles away].

I dig Game Depot. Patti is awesome. The only problem I have is that everytime I go in there with four to five games in mind they never have them in stock. If I'm going to "go local" and pay local I want instant gratification especially since many times it is a last minute gift I want to give.

After this happened three to four times I kind of gave up. Game Depot is still a great store though.

Try Imperial Outpost. Everytime I go in there I am amazed at what they have in stock. The gaming groups there have extremely nice people. Seriously check em' out.

+1 Imperial Outpost. It's a bit far from the airport, but it's definitely the best gaming store in the valley.

Heroscape, sadly, has been out of print for years, so you'll be hard pressed to find it here.

Crusader's Retreat on 40th St and Thunderbird has a decent selection of games. Looks like mostly miniatures and MtG gamers there but some board games too.
