Do any stores still sell tall pants for women?

Are there any stores that still stock tall/long womens' pants and jeans in their brick and mortar stores?
It seems like a few years ago I could at least occasionally go into brick-and-mortar stores and find pants in long/tall sizes. Recently I went into a variety of stores (Gap, Loft, Banana Republic) and found that none of them had any tall sized pants in the store at all. A further check online showed that more stores had moved their tall sizes to online only. I really like being able to try on pants and getting stuff shipped to my workplace is an inconvenience, and getting stuff shipped to my home is an impossibility.
I am a woman, generally wear a size somewhere around 8 for pants, and I generally buy pants with a 34"-36" inseam. I am in NYC so I have a wide variety of retail options available to me. I know regular sizes at Express tend to be quite long, and their editor pants work well on me even in standard length, but their jeans tend to be a little short.
I just want to try on some pants in a store and have there be a possibility of them fitting me-- am I looking in the wrong places or is that just too much to ask?
