What types of guppy strains your LFS normally keeps? because Pure strains guppies are expensive, As you rightly said, keeping only male guppies will reduce your chances of getting next better generation guppy from Line breeding / in breeding techniques.
Other reason could be purely because Guppy males are colourful & attractive & females are normally dull. So probably your LFS is not keeping female guppies. However, some of the guppy pure strains are really good in colors.
I have 2 Pure Albino red females, one red lace snakeskin & one yellow snakeskin female which I managed to get from my very trusted LFS & they are really good in colors if you compare normal guppy females.
If you are looking to breed guppies & that too for a quality strain, I would strongly suggest to get the stock from either a trusted LFS or from reputed guppy breeder.
Some LFS store dont even understand the basic reason why male & female guppies from such precious strains are kept seperate. Keeping or Mixing these guppies with other 'not so good' guppies will more or less result in poor offspring...
