This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

    
I don't think you should focus on having your guitar tuned by default, since (1) you can do it yourself with a guitar tuner (they come cheap) (2) you'll eventually have to retune your guitar every once in a while. –  Anthony Labarre Sep 29 '11 at 16:13
    
So choosing Your first guitar is rather not about tunning. You find plenty of useful advice in this question and also in this question –  Hubert Czerski Sep 29 '11 at 16:35

I'm afraid tuning is something which is done and maintained, for the most part, by the store. If you're asking about good beginner instruments, I'd recommend Yamaha as they have excellent quality-control (so you're unlikely to find a bad one) and are very competitively priced (so if you decide to not stick with it, you haven't wasted too much money).

Seeing as beginners often have difficulty determining good instruments from bad, I'd also recommend bringing a friend with you who already plays if possible.
