So they may simply be rather shy for the moment. After a while they'll probably lighten up and come up. This could explain why you're seeing them burrowing now when at the pet store you didn't observe this kind of behavior. I remember my very first cat wouldn't come out from under the bed for days when we first got him. Worried the hell out of me for a while.
My girlfriend looked something up and said they are probably dealing with stress of new environment. So that sounds about right.
