Were they eating at the LFS?
What are you trying to feed them?
I wouldn't worry too much yet, it takes many fish a week or so to start eating. My Coral Beauty would not eat for the first 10 days after I got her. She eats like a pig now.
Are they in qt? Its easier to get them to start eating in a qt setting.

They probably are scared. They have been through a lot in the past few days. What are you feeding them? Try different things and some good frozen foods and see what they like. At least they are eating something.

I have had these two green chromis for over two weeks now and they are still scared like hell when I come to the room. When I first got them, they adopted a corner of the tank and would just stick there. Give them time. As for feeding, I just give them a little bit of flake food, twice a day. I tried once giving them bits of shrimps, but they did not ate them. As quarryshark says, they have been through a lot, they just need time to adjust and feel secure in their new environment.
